*This blog post was written when I studied abroad in Granada in 2009. Though it is certainly not up to the quality of the articles I currently write, I didn’t want to lose the humble beginnings of this blog (at the time called European Escapades). Bear this in mind, and check back, as I plan to write more informative posts with photographs about many of the places I visited while studying abroad.*
My wonderful journey is over. I cannot believe how fast the time went. For all you kids studying abroad next semester, LIVE IT UP. You won’t realize until its too late that there was so much more you wanted to do. I have had such an amazing time here in Granada and do not want to leave yet. This is so bittersweet. I really miss my friends from home and my normal life, having things that you are familiar with is so comforting. But I do not want to leave the life I have here either. This city has taught me to expect the unexpected, to party til 7am, to be more spontaneous, and has given me even more of a yearning to become fluent in spanish. This semester has been hard academically. The work load was different than at school, and the class styles were different.
*Clearly I never finished*
