A Five Year Period Hiatus & How I Cope | My Experience

I'm currently sitting on my sofa, with a cup of peppermint tea and hot water bottle watching Bob's Burgers.  Now the best place to start is probably the beginning.  People all experience it differently, some people suffer, some people it doesn't bother and for some people like myself its very intermittent.

I really struggled when I first started, throughout school and college I had to have days off because I was just in too much pain and couldn't focus. I felt immobilised. In my late teens I opted to get the implant, its the size of a hair grip and just sits inside your arm. I had researched it a lot and saw that it helped with periods for a lot of people. So I thought, why not? I also got it for one of the obvious reasons, contraception.

Not-So-Obvious Countries Where The Food Is Amazing And Worth Travelling For*

Obviously, food plays a big part when I’m choosing where I want to go for my holiday. After all, it makes a trip worth it if the food is to die for! Putting obvious choices like Italy and Mexico aside, there are some amazing countries which tick the boxes when it comes to food. Here are some not-so-obvious countries where is the food is amazing and worth travelling for!


Only situated about three hours away, there is plenty to interest people when it comes to Portugal. In fact, the Algarve is one of the top rated places in Europe for its beautiful beaches. But foodies will want to flock there for the amazing food choices on offer. Their delicious sardines are amazing and are fantastic on the grill. In fact, you will struggle to find a restaurant not selling the delicious fish. They use codfish a lot to make delicious dishes Pastéis de bacalhau, which is our version of fishcakes. And if you have a sweet tooth, there are many egg-based desserts which will satisfy your appetite including torta de Azeitão. And don’t forget to enjoy a glass of Sangria or two while enjoying the sunset in the Algarve.
