2015 I was studying abroad. It’s hard to believe that this week makes 3 years since I took my first international trip to Spain. I remember the hours I stalked my program website, googled Granada until I memorized every tourist attraction, and read 10 packing lists to get my suitcase just right. I also remember being super annoying to people back home at saying, “I’m gonna miss *insert campus event* because I’ll be in Spain or Morocco.” How basic of me.
Anyway, after 1,095 days to reflect on how study abroad has impacted my life, I’m breaking down the best and worst things about studying abroad in Spain. This also includes traveling through Europe and how to financially prepare for a semester in Europe. Plus, there are tips and general study abroad advice too!
