This was my first ever proper summer holiday abroad. It was actually one of the things I really wanted to do this year so I’m so happy I got to experience life outside of the UK. I was away for 7 nights and stayed in Majorca at the Palma Nova hotel. It was so crazy […]
I had never actually been to a fine dining restaurant and whenever I do eat out I rarely take pictures of the food so it was a lovely change to be invited by my university for a thank you meal for helping out at the skills show. I was very surprised by how professional the environment was and never expected to have 3 different courses with all the cutlery and wine glasses, it was so cool and we were even treated to champagne on arrival.
Oh my goodness! I know how rare this may look to some people but it was cooked properly and tasted so delicious and full of flavour especially with the jus.
I used to think that small meals would never fill me up but after eating the 3 courses I was so stuffed. I was also very grateful to be apart of the event because I really did enjoy myself and it was great to be appreciated by others. There were lots of ingredients on each dish which all complemented each other so well.
Princess Sophie, countess of Wessex came to officially open my new-ish university building, which was so exciting. I got to stand at a post by the stairs and un-clip the rope along with 5 other ambassadors on different parts of the staircase. We had to address her as ‘Your Royal Highness’ and the ladies had to curtsey.
Princess Sophie also unveiled a plaque for the university. Also she is the Queens daughter in law, I can’t lie I didn’t really know who she was at first however in the moment it was still really cool to be in her presence.
It’s quite a random post however I thought I would share 🙂 hope everyone has a wonderful week.
