My name is Bethany, but I’m often known as Havanah, from my middle name. Despite being a walking English stereotype, I’m currently studying at a university in the Netherlands (Liberal Arts and Sciences with a focus on history, literature, and art).

Outside of this, I love music, reading, painting, taking photos, creative things generally. Although the workload at university is quite heavy (really!), I also enjoy socialising and exploring the world in the free time that I do have.

This blog started as a diary of sorts, aimed at keeping friends up to date during my gap year. Although my gap year has finished I have decided to keep writing as, perhaps, with my move abroad, it’s even more useful for keeping friends and family up to date 😉
