This past summer I had the amazing opportunity to spend eight weeks studying abroad in Barcelona. I was able to take courses that would not have fit into my semester schedule and experience a completely different culture. Studying abroad was an incredible experience and taught me so much about myself and the world around me. It instilled in me a new love of travel and I think that everyone should study abroad if they have the chance. During my time abroad I was also able to go to Portugal and France, and each place was truly beautiful.
