This week my friend who studied here last semester, Heidi, is here to visit her beloved Granada. I had a final on Thursday and she arrived Friday. We´ve been on the go enjoying the city just like we used to do together. Another year long student and I have been asking her what it was […]

The shock of English

May 18th, 2011 · No Comments · Spain - Kim Borbone '12, Study Abroad

Last week I went to London to visit my best friend who is studying there. On my way to the airport I was on the verge of tears. It felt as if I was leaving Spain for good since whenever I travel alone it´s usually to and from my studying destinations. I may have only […]

All of these holidays would make one think Spain practices religion

But no, it´s really just an excuse for another day off. Semana Santa was our spring break and it was a week full of parades, consisting of Jesus standing on a giant gold float followed by Mary on a giant gold float. The price of a cape on Mary on one of the floats is […]

March 5th I went to Carnaval in Cadiz. It’s a yearly festival kind of like Halloween for us where everyone dresses up. Except […]

Parlez Vous… English?

March 2nd, 2011 · No Comments · Spain - Kim Borbone '12, Study Abroad

I WENT TO PARIS. Wow. That´s not something I ever realisticly thought I´d say at 20 years old. I also never thought I´d live in Spain for 10 months, but that´s a different story. So Wednesday night my roommate Kayla and I left our apartment around 9, figuring there would be a bus around 10 […]

Nervous.

February 20th, 2011 · No Comments · Spain - Kim Borbone '12, Study Abroad

Nothing is worth giving up an oppurtunity of a lifetime. We […]

Getting sick in a foreign country, oh the differences.

Rain is better than snow, in my opinion.

January 28th, 2011 · No Comments · Spain - Kim Borbone '12, Study Abroad

Rainy days here in Granada but its better than the massive snow storms back home! As I sit on my bed in my wonderful new apartment I’m looking out the window to see how the day is. Well I’m pretty lucky and when I look out the window I see the Alhambra. It’s amazing. Kayla […]
