Every second of the day, I am wishing I was back in Bilbao, surrounded by all the wonderful friends I made, sitting on the beach, practicing my Spanish with locals, and having not a care in the world.

I must say...I have had a plethora of interesting experiences during my time here in Spain. Weird things tend to happen to me when in a group setting, and it's something different… Continue reading Viva España!
Looking at the calendar, I am realizing that I have been living in Spain for three full weeks. Time is a nonexistent concept here.

It makes me stop and cherish each moment I am here because I… Continue reading Mess with the Bull and You Get the Horns
Our Summer USAC group in Bilbao decided to take a midweek break yesterday, which I am totally okay with. All 30 something of us students hopped on a bus and were taken to San Juan de Luz, France (Saint Jean de Luz in French). Translated into English, this means Saint Juan of the Light.
