Must see places

One of my favorite parts about studying abroad is being able to travel to other places easily. I have traveled almost every weekend since studying in Barcelona. Since I also do an internship here, I have to be back for work on Monday morning which makes my weekends...

Life Across the Pond

How my abroad experience has been so far: As someone who has traveled a lot, going to a different country is something that though I am familiar with, it’s always a new and fun experience. One thing I always forget about is that there is usually no air...
