It has almost been two weeks since I arrived back in the States, and I thought it would be the perfect time to share some important travelling, safety, and general advice with you guys that the video below does not include.

What I Miss Most About Abroad: 2) The Architecture

May 10, 2019

Number 2 in the Series: The Architecture. I'm actually surprised at the lack of footage of architecture in Barcelona. I think that during my field studies and the times I would play tourist, I was genuinely busy taking everything in. In my Barcelona and the Cosmopolitan City class, we learned a lot about the Catalan Gothic style of architecture throughout the city so I became a total nerd for architecture this semester because of it. I found myself constantly being in awe of everything around me. 

What I Miss Most About Abroad: 1) The Sunsets

May 9, 2019

As my time in Barcelona has comes to a close, I want to share with everyone a list of what I will miss most about studying abroad. Number one on the list? The sunsets. Not to be dramatic or anything because I know I can watch the sun set anywhere in the world. However, there is something cathartic watching the sunset with people I had only met a few months prior taking in the most surreal views thousands of miles away from home. To be traveling the world at 21 with incredible instant friends is such a gift.
