My final trip of the semester was four days in the beautiful country of Portugal. Myself and three friends from IES travelled to Albufeira, in the Algarve, a beachy town with cobblestone streets and ample Portugese charm. Four days of relaxation was exactly what I needed after my week long journey through Europe, and the beautiful beaches of Albufeira provided just that.

<p>I am a student studying history, political science, and international relations at the University of Rochester, interested in pursuing a career in law and politics. I love to travel, read, and go on new adventures, the next of which is my semester abroad in Dublin, Ireland studying at Trinity College. I like to express my thoughts and opinions through photography and blogging, and have organized my class structure such that I am always learning new things about the world around me. I think its important to look at our past to formulate positive change for the future, and I hope that with experience in politics and history I can hope to contribute in a positive way to the world around me, wherever my adventures may take me. </p>
