Almost another month has flown by abroad, I cannot believe that I will be returning in four short weeks. After my weekend in Barcelona, I returned to Alicante for a short week of classes and then was off to Seville in the most Southern part of Spain with CIEE, my study abroad program. I had a lot of fun touring the city and seeing the Plaza de Espana, the cathedral and being a tourist. The next weekend I traveled to Milan, Italy with a friend from my classes here to stay with one of her friends, from Santa Clara University. I had such a great weekend, going out to apertivos (best invention ever – all you can eat authentic Italian food for only 9 euros!), walking the city, marveling at the Via Montenapoleone street where Ferrari’s were the norm to be parked next to Gucci and Versace store fronts. After a very close encounter with almost not getting home (basically we thought the flight left an hour later than it actually did, and miraculously made it on the plane after the gate had closed and the
plane was to take off in 15 minutes) I returned to Alicante for midterms. After a short midterm week I was off to the city of fashion and love – Paris, France. I, like most people, fell in love with that city. Although I can’t say the same for the French, I had an amazing time touring the city and experiencing a short weekend as a Parisian.
Now I am back in Alicante for a while, a few more short trips, and then back to home! Now that it is getting closer and closer to my departure date, I keep reminding myself of the amazing experience and opportunity I have had here to study, learn and experience living in a different country. As current or prospective students I HIGHLY encourage you to look at Witt’s study abroad courses, even if just for a few weeks or an entire year, it doesn’t only just enhance your education but as well your life.
Off to watch the Real Madrid soccer game and enjoy the Spanish nightlife!
