Humbled

There were two instances I was brought to tears in public on this trip.

The first was losing my phone in Barcelona, but the second was because of what my group did a couple weeks later.

Level 1 and 2 take separate classes, except our 141 culture class. One day after class, everyone was trying to decide plans to hang out. One of the girls was talking to me outside and from behind me, another girl named Eunji said, "Hey Cassie... We have something for you."

I turned around…

There were genuine leather goods, shoes, bags, belts, clothes, scarves, jewelry, paintings, sculptures, and nicknacks. Some of the venders sell new goods and others have estate sales. …

El Retiro

We took the metro and the exit placed you right on the edge of the park. And so we walked.

Paved and dirt paths spiderweb across the whole park, which spans at least 10 city…

Week 1

Hello everyone! 

Time for an update...



I can't believe it has only been 7 days. I feel like I have been in Spain for a month! I have done so much in this past week.

Shortly after I arrived, my house moms gave me a tour of the apartment and offered me coffee. We sat down and talked... or tried too... I explained that I only knew a little Spanish and she said she only knew a little English. I understood most of what she was saying and tried to…

Longest Day of my Life

I made it... 

somehow....

I can't believe how many hours I have been awake.

Only slept on the plane for about 2 hours and fighting with the sandman as we speak until its a reasonable hour to sleep here in Spain.

But everything went smoothly. There were at least 7 other people from the program on my flight so getting to the ACCENT center was easy and then Taxied to my host family's place.

THEY ARE SO DARN CUTE!

My Spanish is probably no where near…

D Day

It's D day...

Well technically it's 10 min until midnight of Departure day, but close enough! By the time in finish writing this it will be.

All the days leading up to it have been a valiant effort to try and organize the past half century of my life! (Not to be dramatic or anything)

Not only am I packing for Spain, but moving out of the house.. my house... I lived in for the past four years. After the Quarter Abroad Program in Madrid, I plan to stay longer and won't be…
