Viva Madrid!

Posted March 5th, 2014 by Kaitlyn in Granada, Spain

Well, I have decided that blogging every day or every two days is now out of the picture. Lucky for you guys. Haha, I have also decided that I have a little “pre-trip” anxiety, as I often find myself down in the dumps or nervous for something prior to every trip, just as I had…

It has been quite a crazy time here in Spain! A few weeks ago, the group and I set out for the most amazing experience I have had yet in my life. It is called, “Morocco Exchange,” and is something that the Central program offers to all students with no extra cost. While in Morocco,…

La Tetería, La Iglesia, y La Escuela Infantil de Cartuja.

Posted February 13th, 2014 by Kaitlyn in Granada, Spain

Saturday night, I was invited to go the the tetería (tea shop) with a few friends. To be quite honest, I wasn’t in the mood to go, and the fact that it was raining made leaving the house even harder. I was already having a “pity party” for myself because I was dumb and left…

Counting Blessings via España

Posted January 28th, 2014 by Kaitlyn in Granada, Spain

As I slowly start to adjust here, I become more and more amazed with the way God has been working in my life. I have seen his presence so much in the last week and a half, and cannot even begin to wrap my head around all that he is doing in me and through…

Posted January 17th, 2014 by Kaitlyn in Granada, Spain

Hello from Granada! It has been quite the experience over here so far. After having two delayed flights, I missed my connection flight from Madrid to Granada and watched my plane leave the airport. I was able to catch the very next flight out, but was still angry at the fact that I had to…

Last weekend we want to Madrid and saw the most amazing sights! We got to tour the palace and go to this dance/homemade instrument show where they played things like PVC pipes, trashcans, water, etc. Definately one of the coolest shows I’ve ever been to!

Culture Club

Posted October 22nd, 2013 by Drew in Granada, Spain

My program director, Veronica Montero, sent my group (Granada) a link yesterday, here. In the discussion boards of the New York Times “Room for Debate”, many aspects of studying abroad were discussed, including an article questioning whether or not study abroad was worth the time, and questioned the motives and the value of such programs….

Humanity

Posted October 5th, 2013 by Drew in Granada, Spain

When you come to a foreign country, you expect, well, something foreign. You expect to be slatted as an outsider from the get go, and assume you are going to have an uphill battle the entire semester. I was completely expecting to enter into some kind of exotic land that would fulfill my hopes and…
