Argentina: Study Abroad, emphasis on “study”

Hola to all! Apologies for not writing for almost a month, but I have (at least what I think to be) a good excuse! It’s midterm time. Part of what I forget about study abroad is that while I have the opportunity to go on many adventures (which I will update everyone on in another…

My first soccer Game …Granada

I have been in Granada a little over four months, as the time is getting closer and closer for me to go, I could not go before seen a game of soccer. I have always seen the games on TV with family but I never felt a great interest. I would watch a because someone…

My First Impression of Granada…

The First time I saw Granada on January 25th still seems like a dream even a month after. I know I have not written anything since my first post but for me, it has been difficult finding the right things to say. In many cases, I have sat down and pondered what to write, or…

My Journey to Granada

Trying to figure out what country to study has been a challenge, from trading to decide between Mexico or Spain, of course, Spain won. After deciding on the program, it was time for applying for the visa. If you ever need a visa, apply to it as soon as possible, I was confused with the…

Chapter 2- Class is in Session somewhere in the Pacific

We have had our first day of classes and I’m honestly really enjoying all that’s going on. Just like any college, I am not going to class 24 hours of the day. However, unlike any other college experience, I am on a ship with limited space in the middle of the ocean. Meaning that I…

Spain – Soaking It All In

Yes, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything. Yes, I’m still alive. And yes, I’m still enjoying my time abroad. In fact, I’m enjoying my time so much that I never have any time to simply sit down and write. But, that’s okay. I can give everyone the full report, down to every miniscule detail,…

Spain – Fútbol Fever

Ni Barça, ni Madrid, ATHLETIC! On paper this simple phrase doesn’t look too power. But, have 40,000 crazy soccer fans scream it around you, and the chant will be ingrained in your memory forever. Last Sunday, I found myself in the third row of San Mamés Stadium, watching Athletic Club Bilbao play FC Barcelona. This…

Spain: Basque-ing in a New Culture

Like most people, when I thought of Spain, my mind instantly jumped to images of flamenco dancers, matadors, tapas, siestas, and the Running of the Bulls. However, after living just one week here, I know that Spain has so much more to offer. For years I had been reading blogs, travel guides, and articles about…

Angers is Good.

Tonight I finally sat down to once again write a blog-worthy narrative of my time here in France.  My posting has not been as disciplined as I had hoped it would be before I settled in Angers, but I also did not expect idle time to be so non-existent.  Of course, I have spent afternoons…
