My Study Abroad Experience

At the Royal Palace in Madrid

My passion for traveling and learning Spanish led me to my first study abroad opportunity. Last spring, I studied abroad in Madrid,Spain. It was one of the best educational and growing experiences of my life. I lived in Spain for five months in a house with 10 other people. It was pretty much like the "Real World" TV show minus cameras surrounding us 24/7.

I was able to do a lot of travleing, because I took two online courses from the University of Florida, and I took classes at a Spanish University, Universidad Antonio de Nebrija, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This gave me a four day weekend to travel and see the world.

During my studies abroad I went to Switzerland, Italy, Portugal and France. In Spain, I was able to travel by bus, train or plane and I went to Cordoba, Grandada, Sevilla, Barcelona and Asturias.

One day I hope to visit Spain again, and possibly live there for a year or two.
