La Granja

As my adventure in Sevilla, Spain came to a close I turned my sights on a new type of adventure. Upon the ending of my study abroad experience I boarded a 3 hour train to Jaen, Spain, transferred to a 2 hour bus ride to Carzola, Spain where I then spent the night in a nice…

Oh the places you’ll go

At my age it can be hard to see the big picture. Hard to grasp how quickly time passes. At 20 I’m relatively young, yet for the first time, I also feel old. Tonight is my last night in Sevilla and its taken this moment for me to realize how much I’m going to miss…

Stop or I’ll tell my mom!

The past couple of weeks I have been working in a Spanish play school, attempting to teach Spanish kids English. A task much easier said than done. There are five age groups: 4-5, 6-7, 7-8, 8-9, and a teenage group, and I work with group one, 4-5 year olds. It has been interested to observe…

Ronda

On the final excursion for my school I went to a small city south east of Sevilla. Starting the day was a little rough: sleeping though my alarm, still feeling the night before, and having about four hours of sleep. Dressing, eating, and getting out the door took a total of 10 minutes, and needless…

Itálica

Went to the first permanent roman settlement in the south Iberian peninsula. I walked on a street with the stones dating back to the beginning of the 2nd century. Although its not necessarily a “stunning” place I loved the rich history. As I walked down the streets I couldn’t help but think about how many…

Surfing

After watching the sunset we went back to the hotel, changed, got dinner, and then went out. The affects of which I felt when I had to get up at 9, after 4 hours of sleep, to go surfing. Surfing was really fun and incredibly difficult. The beach however was sunning and I wish I…

Cabo de St Vincent

After the cruise we had a couple hours of down time and then we went to what the Portuguese used to think was the end of the world, when they thought the world was flat, for the sunset. It was break taking. Because of the view and because it was really cold and windy.

Sangria’s the Name

Traveled to Lagos Portugal this past weekend and had a absolutely wonderful time. We got in around 7pm at dinner and went out on the town. The next morning we woke up in our 4 star hotel and had the best continental breakfast I’ve ever had before boarding the bus to one of the most…

Plaza de España

Went to one of the biggest parks in Spain with the intention of meeting up with a friend, however the park was so big we couldn’t find each other.

Paddle surfing

Two weekends ago I had a paddle surfing class on the Atlantic Ocean. The weather was rough but I was able to stand and had a blast going over decently sized waves.

Cordoba

Last weekend we went on a school trip to Cordoba. It was beautiful. The old buildings dominated the city, and the small winding road taunted you, hoping to lure you in and then let you out. Per usual the trip had little to no organization. Arriving at the bus station we piled into two buses…
