Location: Brighton, UK

MapHi everyone,

I should have written this final entry ages ago, since it had been almost three weeks (*sob*) since I returned from Ecuador. As you may have noticed by reading my weblog, I had the most fantastic-est time and have zillions of great memories of the three months I spent out there. However, the time arrived when I had to catch that flight home, and sad as it was to say goodbye to everyone and to the wonderful country i'd grown to love, in a way I was ready to come home. Although there is a lot that I miss about it already, I'm just grateful for the amazing time I was able to spend there, and I'm hoping to have the chance to return at some point in the future.

I spent a lovely week at home in Mallorca before returning to Brighton about a week and a bit ago - where my life has suddenly become incredibly hectic again (how I wish I could go back to those stressfree days up at the Hacienda!). But I only have one year left at uni, so I want to make the most out of it and enjoy it as much as possible - and obviously do as well as possible too!

I'm currently writing an essay on my time in Ecuador - specifically on my experiences at my work placement - which I am going to submit for the Trainee of the Year Award that's taking place in London in a few months' time. The deadline for the essay is Friday 19th Oct, and two weeks after that I'll find out if I made the top ten list - in which case I would then have to go to London for the final part and give a 5min presentation in front of a panel of judges (gulp!). First prize is £1000, second £500 and third £250, so fingers crossed!

Lots of love to everyone,

Kilina xxxx
