Gettysburg College
Salamanca - Advanced Spanish Immersion / Study in Salamanca

I’m a 20 year old student attending Gettysburg College where I study English with a focus on writing and Spanish. I come from a big, close-knit Italian family, am in love with reading and writing, and am always open to new experiences. I hope to be as creative as possible in everything I do and can't wait to find influence from my semester in Salamanca!

My adventure in Europe as officially been over for about a week now, and although I've been crazy busy with holiday events since I've been back, I've still had some time to really think about my semester abroad and how it changed me.

The end of my semester abroad is rapibdly approaching. I'm pretty sure the countdown has reached about 17 days now til I board my plane and fly home to the US. At this point I feel a huge mix of emotions. Honestly, I spent a lot of my time abroad yearning to go back home.

I should probably start this off on a little more of a positive note than the title suggests. Being a student in Spain isn't terrible. In fact, in most ways it's very similar to being a student in the US.

Yes everyone, I've now learned the valuable lesson of why it's so important to always have your passport when travelling.

That pun just never gets old for me to be honest.

Last weekend my friends and I travelled to Dublin for three days and it may have been my favorite trip so far.

I finally ventured outside of Spain!!

Since deciding to go abroad I knew I wanted to see as many countries as I could in the four short months I had in Europe. As soon as I heard that my friends Cynthia and Emily had signed up for a half marathon in Lisbon I knew I had to join in.

Hellllooooooo! I'm back once again.

I've officially arrived in Spain and despite all my nerves and fears of being unprepared, I truly feel ready to take on the semester!

My flight for Spain leaves in approximately eight days, twenty-three hours, and fifty-two minutes, and I'm not at all ready.
