MADRID, SPAIN I just realized that this blog post I wrote a million years ago (back in October) is up on CollegeTourist.com so check it out:

MADRID, SPAIN –> CT, USA It’s January 19th, which means that I have officially been back home in the United States for exactly one month! Time flies! I thought I would take some time to reflect on my final days of my Spanish study abroad experience. I wrote this the day before I headed to

102 days // 7 countries // 24 cities // a lifetime of memories. Studying abroad was everything I hoped it would be and more. I am beyond thankful for this experience but it’s time to start my next adventure… Until next time, Madrid

I can now say that I’m in my final two weeks in Madrid, which seems surreal. I feel like I just got here and like I’ve been here forever, which makes no sense at all. In between freaking out about studying for my millions of finals, I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on my

Since I’m leaving Madrid later this week, I decided to do some reflecting (while procrastinating my finals studying, of course) on some of my favorite little things about Madrid, as well as my study abroad experience as a whole. So here’s the first one!

The ease of travel throughout Europe Vegan croquetas The adorable puppy play group I pass on my way to class every morning Learning new Spanish every day Having meals cooked for me every day There is always SOMETHING to do when living in a city Free entry to clubs The drinking age (sorry dad) Talking

MADRID, SPAIN Here’s the thing: Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. Sure, I don’t eat meat so it’s not about the turkey (though I do love a good tofurkey and could start drooling just thinking about the delicious feast my family prepares). It’s more about tradition.

MADRID, SPAIN Wednesday: After two loooooong months, I was lucky enough to receive a visit from my boyfriend, Tommy! As a college graduate with a “big boy job” as I like to call it, Tommy took a PAID (so unfair) week off of work to adventure with me in Europe. I couldn’t have been happier to

Madrid, Spain Can’t believe I’ve officially been in Madrid for a month. It’s been quite a ride! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE being here, but one thing they don’t tell you about traveling is that when you are sick all you’ll want is a hug from your mom Finally got a Spanish cell phone

Madrid, Spain I didn’t even realize until I looked at back through my photos that today was full of adventures. After a normal morning of classes, I met my Spanish Culture and Civilization class at the National Archeological Museum. It’s definitely a LOT to take in all at once but the substitute teacher that came with

MADRID, SPAIN This past week has been nuts! We started school (hence the obligatory first day of school photo), have been exploring the city, went to a salsa night, got VIP entry and free drinks at a local club, checked out the free class at a local pole fitness studio, and planned our first weekend

MADRID, SPAIN Last night we went out to a popular club, Joy, and danced the night away. You don’t have to be drunk to enjoy a night in Madrid. Unlike at home, the nightlife is often about social drinking (instead of pounding drink after drink) and, as corny as it may sound, enjoying time with your

USA —> EUROPE This past week I’ve said goodbye to the most important people in my life. I got to head to Block Island to celebrate my mom’s birthday on my family’s annual summer Block trip right before we sent my baby sister off to Endicott. A couple days later, I was lucky enough to
