England: April_Log #2

As with many long trips, there are times when I yearn to be in my home and see my parents, pets, and siblings each day. Though I am happy to be in Leeds and have grown comfortable with the lifestyle here, I always remember to make a call to my family every now and then….

England: April_Log #1

This month seemed pretty long, but also short. For the majority of April, we did not have any classes due to Easter Break. During this time, I was able to enjoy some time to relax, explore Leeds, and travel to London! One of the most exciting things is that spring finally came and I was…

So far, I’ve been able to travel to Berlin, Brussels, London, Brugge, Barcelona, Vienna, and Amsterdam. I still have Dublin and…

UK: Playing Catch-Up

Well, London here we are! Hard to believe I have been in this beautiful city for almost a month. It has been such a whirlwind of an adventure. My days have been busy, filled with school and exploring my new home. CAPA did such a wonderful job easing all of us into our schedules; they…

Spain: Traveling, Homesickness, Back to Writing

It’s been a while since I last posted, but with so much going on daily it seemed like there never was an appropriate point to sit down and begin writing. It has been just over two months since we came to Spain, and the excitement of living and studying in a foreign country has still…
