Home is the Nicest Word There Is.

Posted May 27th, 2014 by Kaitlyn in Granada, Spain

There is so much to write in this little blog post, and I can’t even begin to wrap my head around it. I will admit, I have put off writing it for a while now. Yes, there is something so awesome about being able to write about my lasts, because that meant I was coming…

Le Château de Versailles

Posted May 21st, 2014 by Emily in Paris, France

My decision to visit the birthplace of the French Revolution came when Île de France, the region where Paris is located, was de-zoned over the spring holidays. The way that zoning works is that people pay for the regions they regularly visit when they recharge their monthly Navigo (public transportation) passes. Since I live in…

You Only Lagos Once

Posted May 21st, 2014 by Kaitlyn in Granada, Spain

Well. I hate to say it, but my last big trip while abroad is now over. It is crazy to think that I am now down to 17.5 days until I am back at home. It is such a bitter sweet feeling, and as much as I want to go home and see everyone, I…

Paris Promenade

Posted May 8th, 2014 by Emily in Paris, France

Not surprisingly, part of going to the Catholic Institute is taking a French language course. My professor went on medical leave for the first half of the semester, so we had a substitute. Seeing her go was a bit emotional. To make things a little easier she took us on a tour of the Latin…

Ibiza : The prettiest place in the world!

Posted May 8th, 2014 by Kaitlyn in Granada, Spain

Well, I don’t even know where to start with this blog. I have no idea if it will turn out long or short, sappy or funny, etc. I have started and deleted it about 3 times now, but I guess the one word to describe my “Semana Santa” spring break is BLESSED. After having my…

It’s Tulip Time!

Posted May 1st, 2014 by Rachel in Leiden, the Netherlands

It’s Easter weekend, and the tulips are in full bloom! Over the course of the past two weeks, I’ve been to the tulip fields four times. Each time the fields were a little more brighter and fuller until on Easter Sunday, they came out full-force. While today the tulip is a symbol of the Netherlands,…

1. You’ll Get to Meet People from All Corners of the Globe Since Leiden is home to two major universities, there are opportunities left and right to join international organizations.

Posted April 8th, 2014 by Kaitlyn in Granada, Spain

Well, it has officially been a long time since I have last posted, and I am so sorry. I have had the intentions of blogging for a few days now, and just haven’t gotten around to it. Since today is a lazy Saturday, I guess y’all can get a little update, anyways. Life in Granada…

Wien Endlich…

Posted March 31st, 2014 by Charlotte in Vienna, Austria

I cannot believe a month has already passed since I’ve been in Vienna! My love for this city has only grown more and more each day- especially with the absolutely beautiful weather we’ve been having! Unlike in Schwäbisch Hall where I was mostly hanging out with the other American kids in the program, I am…

Belleville

Posted March 31st, 2014 by Emily in Paris, France

One of the most important components of the Paris program is the bénévolat, or service-learning. Students are placed with different community partners based on their interests and level of French. Since I speak French at a high-intermediate level, my bénévolat is at the Central Socioculturel Belleville (Belleville Sociocultural Center), where activities are conducted entirely in…
