Today I am moving out of the flat that I have been living in for the past year.
It felt so strange when I was packing all my things away. I've made so many memories over the past year and it seems surreal that my first year as a medical student is over.

I know that university isn't something that suits everyone; but I can honestly say that this past year has been one of the best years of my life.

I have met an array of amazing characters, crossed off a number of things off my bucket list and learnt how to become a unique independent individual. But most importantly, I have gained a great appreciation for the human body. Learning about each and every complex mechanism that arises in the body has made me more than happy to have chosen this career path.

I have never been camping because I never really liked the idea of it. So when this camping trip to Wales was organised, I was a bit skeptical to say the least about whether I should go or not.

Having overcome the fear of being unclean for two nights and possibly freezing to death at night, I decided to go along with the fellow medics to the beautiful country that is Wales.

The view from our campsite was simply mesmerising! We pitched our tents on the hill and our view consisted of fields and hills behind us to the deep blue sea that stretched out as far as the eye could reach in front of us.

The following day was spent at a beach that was around 5 miles away from where we were staying - sunbathing on the boulders, feeling the warm sand run in between my toes, making sandcastles and playing games. Memories of my childhood when I lived in the Middle East came flooding back to me...


Being able to watch the sunset by the beach was the most amazing experience I have ever encountered.

Listening to the noise of the waves as the tide hit the rocks on the shore, mixed with the crackling sounds and the warmth of the campfire made this weekend seem surreal.

All those who are kind enough to follow my blog will know that I tend to get bored of things easily and change things around a lot.

This is now my third attempt of having a blog and this time I promise not to change the location of it again.

I'm going to try and restore most of my original posts into this blog in the hope that I can get it up and running smoothly again.
