Hiking in Catalonia

Hey everyone -long time, no see!

This Summer has been such a special one. All the previous Summers till now were gaps in between academic years. But this Summer? This Summer I took my final undergraduate exams, finished Med school and graduated, in a lovely Graduation ceremony, surrounded by family and friends. So what about now, you may ask? Well, many things are going on now. What is certain is that a new chapter is about to begin -a chapter absolutely different and new to me.

But before it begins, let me tell you about my holidays in Spain! Well, it’s no secret that since the first time I visited Spain, I fell in love with the country and its people. Beautiful scenery, with kind and full-of-life people. During my last visit, I had the amazing opportunity to meet a group of amazing people, and join them into a hiking adventure, in Santa Maria de Corcó.

So in this post, I will share with you some memories from this adventure, and a new activity that the guys taught me: Geocaching! If you are interested in reading more about these, then keep on reading! 😉

Medical specialty ~ Things to consider

Hey everyone!

I was talking to some younger colleagues recently and they were asking me for some advice on how to choose their future specialty. You can certainly find a huge number of detailed and comprehensive articles/posts, which serve as a great guide. However, I decided to make this short post and give some advice from my personal experience, to whoever is interested.

Recipe • Strawberry Oatmeal

Hello everyone!

This week I will show you how to make a simple and tasty Strawberry Oatmeal. To be honest, I avoid posting recipes because it is so easy to find tons of them online -and I don’t think that mine are too groundbreaking. However, cooking is one of my passions, so this Blog would be incomplete without some of my favourite ones!

Hey everyone!

I’m back with a new post. This week, I’m going to share with you the 5 most enjoyable books that I’ve used in Med school! These are the books I was always happy to study from, due to their easy-going, friendly style.

Just a quick note: I’ve linked each title to the book’s page on Amazon. However, many of these books have a newer edition available, so if you are interested in buying them, don’t forget to look for the newest version first.

Let’s start!

Things I’d say to my 18-year-old self

Hey everyone!

As some of you may know, I’ve recently turned 28. Yay! It’s difficult to believe it, actually. Have I changed since then? Definitely yes. Am I the exactly the way I thought I would be, when I turned 28? Certainly not!

*And I absolutely love it.*

So what if I could go back, just for 5 minutes and give some advice to my younger self?

Med school & healthy lifestyle

Hey guys!

Today, I wanted to talk about a very important topic: how little, healthy habits make a healthy life, especially when you are in Med school. If you are one of these Med students who can manage to be super effective with their studies, while hitting the gym daily and sleeping 8 hours every night, then this post is probably not for you.

This post is for all of you who have to spend endless hours sitting and studying, before you realize that your back hurts. And then you realize that you didn’t eat healthily, didn’t drink more than 1 glass of water the whole day and -obviously- didn’t have time to stand up and walk around a bit -let alone work out.

Hello, hello!

Is this the second post in one week? Unbelievable!
