Living In Leuven: Week 10 | The Week Where Everything Went Wrong & A Day Trip to Antwerp

I was feeling really under the weather on Monday this week, so I cancelled going to my 9am constitutional law class and spent the day resting up in bed. Of course, since I had missed a class, I spent the majority of Tuesday catching up on the reading and went to my European Criminal Law lecture later on in the afternoon.

Living in Leuven: Week 9 | Exploring Leuven & A Day Trip to Bruges

After a relaxed weekend in Leuven, I decided on Monday to venture out and explore more of the city I live in. Unfortunately, during the KU Leuven Orientation days, I was occupied with having to find my accommodation, so I missed a lot of the guided tours and organised trips to the tourist sights in Leuven. So, after my early morning constitutional law class, I decided to visit Museum M and Sint-Pieterskerk.

Living in Leuven: Week 8 | Academic Worries & Strange Encounters

As mentioned in my previous blog post, I arrived back in Leuven on Sunday with a dreadful cold. Thankfully, it was a public holiday in Belgium on Monday, so I took full advantage of this and managed to rest my voice and recover for the day. On Tuesday, I caught up with all my chores (washing, food shop) and by the time I had human contact again in my Criminal Law class later in the day, my voice had almost fully returned!

Living In Leuven: Week 7 | Pumpkin Carving & A Weekend in Amsterdam

As my weekends are always pretty full on here in Leuven, I always find myself spending the start of the week relaxing and recharging from the previous weekend. Thankfully, I only have a two hour class on Monday and a class every second Tuesday, so I have a lot of free time at the start of the week to catch up on sleep/grocery shopping/washing (boring adult chores!).
