I'm Ellie, I'm 22 and I'm a third year Political Science and French student at the University of Bath.
I started 'Away With Ellie' in Summer 2014 when I was 18. I had just finished my A Levels and I was about to embark on my gap year: 8 months of solo travel from New Zealand to Australia, South East Asia to the United States of America. I had quite possibly the best year of my life, and ever since I have been passionate about getting out of my comfort zone and exploring every inch of this incredible planet.
Then in September 2015, I packed up my room at home and moved up to Bath where I would be studying for 3 years. I completely fell in love with the city during term time, and during holidays I tried to find the time and money to travel as much as I could.
After my first two years of university, as part of my degree, my third year would have to be spent in a foreign country, either studying or working. In August 2017 I will be moving to Paris to study at Sciences Po for 4 months, and then in January 2018, I will move to Cannes for at least 6 months before returning to complete my final year in Bath in October 2018.
I hope you enjoy reading about my adventures as much as I enjoy sharing them with you,
