Leaving an Amazing City Behind

Evan Deschenes
December 26, 2013

1) The Barceloneta sunset is one I will never forget, I have countless memories in this city and they always end in the same amazing sunset

2) Over the course of the fall semester I have met more amazing people than ever, all relationships that I am happy to say I will continue to keep in the future.

3) As I am beginning to make my transition from Barcelona back the cold temperatures in Massachusetts the biggest surprise was to come home to a yard full of snow and a snowman happy as ever.

4) Looking over the amazing city of Barcelona with all of its glory and only a few days left I am filled with so many emotions, mostly sad and anxious, as I never want to leave Barca!

5) As I walked into my house the Christmas decorations fill every room and so does my family, making the transition much easier than I had thought it would be.

6) Out of all of the changes I have experienced in Barcelona my dog is one motivation I have to come home. Her name is Lucy and I have missed her on my last 4 month journey. It is good to be home.

My name is Evan Deschenes I&#39;m a junior studying new media and studio art at the University of Maine Orono. Aside from school I love the outdoors, from hiking to snowboarding and everything in between I&#39;m all about exploring. When not doing physical activities I am soothing my ears to the sounds of Phish and The Grateful Dead. I love expressing my adventures through photography and I hope my posts can give you a look into the amazing experience in Barcelona that I am having!</span></p>
