Well, it took us a while to get to this one, but here we are! A few weeks ago I flew over to Barcelona with a couple of girlfriends to watch Ed Sheeran in concert, then, just one day after returning to Malta, I was off to Catania with my parents. I don't think I … Continue reading Arguably Abroad: Barcelona
Hey guys! I recently wrote a little something for Eve - let me know what you think! Here's an excerpt: Language is a powerful thing when it comes to shaping society and how we interpret the world.
