The second to last weekend in Spain I spent mostly with friends. Saturday morning, Tianna and I went with our intercambio (spanish-speaking) partners to the Campello beach, which was just a Tram ride away. It was really fun, and we spoke about 50/50 english and spanish the whole time. I don’t know if I’ve talked … Continue reading ¡Hasta Pronto!
Hola mi familia y mis amigos! The last week has been a bit wild; while I haven’t been travelling really at all, I’ve found myself busy all day everyday.

Hola! It’s been a while since I’ve posted, mostly due to the chaos that comes with ending one semester and beginning another. So the last week of school I was studying really hard for final exams while saying my goodbyes to my June semester friends. Most of my friends in the program were only here … Continue reading Ohana Means Family

We got there towards the afternoon because we decided to take a cheaper train which had more stops, but that meant I had plenty of time to study for finals.

My Dora Theory: I’m sure many of you have heard it, but I’d … Continue reading ¡Hola! ¡Soy Dora!
I’ve realized that I haven’t talked much about school in this blog. As I previously mentioned, I am attending La Universidad de Alicante (the University of Alicante). I am in 5 VT equivalent credit hours of classes this semester and another 5 next semester. This semester I’m in a C1 level grammar class which I … Continue reading GraNADA Malo
To start, yes I do realize that this blog post title is basically the same as the second to last post I wrote just in Spanish, but we'll get to why that is in a little bit. To start off, I've been recovering from the motorcycle incident (if you'd even call it that) pretty well; … Continue reading Sigue Adelante
I arrived in Alicante on Saturday, June 1st. Right when I arrived I got to meet my host family: Fernando, Lis, and their 4-year old daughter Diana. While the couple has lived in Spain for 15 years or so, they came from Argentina originally. They’ve also been hosting study abroad students for about 13 years … Continue reading Gotta Love Motorcycles
Wow. So much has happened since the last time I posted, and I'm going to try to cover it all. As y'all reading this probably know, my mom passed away 13 days ago; yes, I'm still counting the days. While it seems so soon after her death that I'm going off and exploring another country, … Continue reading Just Keep Going
