Putting Granada on the Map: My Favorite Spots So Far!

October 7, 2018

One of the billion reasons I love Granada is because it is the perfect size: small enough that I know my way around the city without needing to consult Google Maps every few blocks, and big enough that there is always a new corner to explore on my everyday walks. I love that while walking around, I often run into friends on the street or come across a brand new café that I hadn’t noticed before.

If you haven’t been to Victoria Falls, do yourself a favor and book a ticket right now.

While you're at it, consider Kruger National Park and hitting four additional Southern African countries in one week - a feat my friends and I embarked on for our mid-semester break. I promise you won’t regret it.

For some inspiration, I’ve included a series of pictures my friends and I took below. I have to preface by saying this was probably the coolest trip of my life. Seriously. Here’s a quick overview of all the spots we hit:

Adjusting in a new country can be harder than it seems. Studying and living abroad is a lot different than going on vacation. You get more involved with the culture and have to adapt to norms. Don't be afraid to find your niche and embrace the experience!

Sliding Through History

September 18, 2018

Over the past week, I had the oportunity to go on the World Heritage Tour. This field trip is put on by IES Abroad during the first week break. In this week we visted Hallstadt, Salzburg, Český Krumlov and Prague. There is so much to talk about and so many photos to share. However, in this post I will talk about my favorite part of the trip: visting the Salt Mine in Hallstadt. 

Time to Explore and Time to Return

September 16, 2018

After our first week of traveling with the European Union program, I am at a loss of where to begin in this blog.  It is quite difficult to reduce this full week of new sights, thoughts, and relationships into one blog post, but I will try my best.
