“Golden city”, “Mother of Cities”, regardless of how you want to call it, Prague is a unique city, a precious jewel that you should cherish when visiting. Prague is very beautiful throughout the year, but the Christmas period (when I visited) in Prague is absolutely incredible. Imagine a sumptuous and traditional Christmas mixed with a Gothic and baroque city, with moving and thrilling architecture. A mixture that is truly unique in the world, don’t you agree?
So far I’ve been in San Sebastian for a little over one month. As mentioned in my intro I am here with Apple Languages to focus on pushing my Spanish language skills to the next level! Whilst I’m here I will be exploring the city and letting you in on what it’s really like to live and study Spanish in San Sebastian!
For all you Hamburg newbies out there! In this post you will find my personal tips on how to get the most out of one or two days exploring Hamburg!
Start the day by experiencing Hamburg from an unusual perspective by taking a boat tour through the harbour (Germany’s largest port). Go directly to the Harbour to get a boat. Don’t let yourself be intimidated by the many different boats for tourists, the itinerary is the same for all and usually lasts 2 hours! Do, however, watch out for impostors; a tour should cost you no more than 20€!
As soon as I stepped out of the airport, it was love at first sight. There are convenient buses right at the airport exit which, at a great price, take you to the heart of the city centre. This short journey is already spectacular in itself: gorgeous views, monumental palaces, castles that stand in the sky in the distance, make this lovely city truly valuable, which defines it as the modern, cosmopolitan capital of wonderful Scotland.

Just a month ago, I returned from a 6 month study exchange in Brazil. It was part of my studies as I had to follow courses related to the ones I followed back home. I could have done this at many partner universities in the world, but I chose to do this in São Bernardo do Campo. This is a city that is part of the greater São Paulo metropolitan area.
To all the yogis out there who love to travel and nourish their spirit by indulging in something new, this might be an interesting read for you! The ancient yogis taught us to nourish not just our bodies but also our brains by constantly learning.
As a yogi (a practitioner of yoga) I love to discover new things, broaden my knowledge and learn something new, and that’s not just through yoga! The path of learning is a path most of the yogis I know follow throughout their life and yoga practice. Honestly, who wants to do only 26 asanas in the same order in a really hot room all the time? Sorry Bikram Yoga, you’re still great though!
Host family accommodation is by far, the most popular accommodation option we offer. It provides a great way to meet local people and practice your language skills outside of the classroom.
Meeting new people and learning more about the day to day life and culture of the country you are living in is fascinating. A full immersion programme with language lessons and host family accommodation is the most effective way to learn a language.
