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

On Wednesdays we go to Gabana

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!

T + E: Tommy takes Madrid!

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

Fall break update + reflections

ITALY —> SPAIN My trip to Italy was absolutely incredible! Better than I ever could’ve hoped or asked for! However, Madrid feels like home to me now and I was definitely ready to stop living out of a duffel bag and come home. Exhausted as I was, I shuffled into my apartment with a big

Study abroad reflections: October

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

1 day in: Toledo, Spain

Toledo, Spain Okay, I must admit that the excursion to Toledo was not my favorite. I think it’s mostly because I started out quite grumpy; I was starving but my sandwich was soggy so I had to scope out a place to buy something vegetarian without sitting down for an hour, there were randomly flies

Today’s adventures in Madrid

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
