Love At First Sight

Last weekend I took a trip to Granada and I instantly fell in love with the city. The Sierra Nevada Mountains reminded me of home. The small, white, picturesque houses with blue accents that covered the hills were absolutely beautiful. The Moroccan-style architecture was fascinating and the free tapas were just a bonus! If you have a chance while you're abroad, I highly recommend traveling outside of Catalonia to explore other parts of Spain.

<p>My name is Alison Castañeda and I&#39;m a junior double majoring in Communicative Disorders and Spanish at the University of Redlands. I grew up in Rancho Cucamonga, California and I have a passion for traveling, exploring new places, trying new food, and taking tons of pictures. In my free time I like to go thrift shopping, drawing, taking trips to Los Angeles, and spending time with my family. Studying in Barcelona this fall is such a blessing and I couldn?t be happier with my decision.</p>
