    2 Months In: Day trips, Netflix, and more.

    Friday marked the halfway point on in my time here abroad and looking back on all I’ve done it’s no wonder that time has been flying by. Furthermore, looking forward to all I have left to do I doubt that the next 2 months are going to be slowing down at any point soon. So much has happened since my…

    Flying Solo…quite literally

    Mallorca marked my first ever solo trip. I don’t really count Madrid because though I wandered on my own — I was still there with a group. Here, from start to end it was up to me; and I loved it.  Originally, I was trying to meet up with a friend studying abroad elsewhere in Europe in Mallorca but flights…

    Fall in Paris

    So I’m sitting in the airport headed back to Sevilla and wow, what a great weekend. The fact that I have the opportunity to hop on a plane like I did Friday and spend a weekend in Paris and tomorrow I’ll be back in classes — is absolutely mind boggling to me. To make a long post short I had…

    Hitting the Road…more realistically various airports

    So this weekend starts my travels here in Europe. I’m not traveling every weekend because I love it here in Sevilla and want to spend some more time exploring but I do have the wonderful opportunity to travel between European countries for a reasonable price and I do plan  to take advantage of it. First up this weekend is Paris,…

    1 Week Down.

    I did after all come here to study, right and now my first week of classes is over. Don’t get too excited I only have 1 class of the 3 that  I need. At this point I’m pretty sure I won’t be finished getting into classes before I have to figure out my classes for Penn. But slowly and steadily…

    31 Hours in Madrid

    This past weekend I was able to visit Madrid, I had a lot that I wanted to see and exactly 31 hours from the time my train reached Atocha on Saturday morning to the time my train pulled out of Atocha Sunday evening. Side note: trains here make Amtrak look like a little child. Not solely because we don’t have…

    Explore and You Will Grow

    I’ve almost been here for a full month now and I feel like I’m beginning to hit my stride. I’m exploring the museums, getting to know the different neighborhoods, and trying new things. So a brief update on what I’ve been up too (pictures of these places will follow shortly): Noches En Alcazar Honestly, Alcazar might be one of the…

    The Seasons are Changing

    As the oppressively hot weather makes way for autumn winds here in Sevilla, I’m reminded of Mary Poppins. Yes, that is right, I did indeed just say Mary Poppins. The changing of seasons and winds always reminds me of Mary Poppins. It doesn’t help that I’ve had Feed the Birds stuck in my head since the other day on our…

    Finding Calm in the Storm

    “Siempre habrá problemas, pero tienes que pensar que también siempre habrá soluciones” -Pepa I’m beginning to feel like time is never going to slow down here. Every day there’s something new to do, a new challenge to overcome or  a new place to explore, and while I have loved it to say that it has felt like a constant hurricane of…
