Spain: Reflections

Submitted by Daniel Bailey on the 2019 fall semester study abroad program in Granada, Spain…

The past four months have really flown by. I remember before I came to Spain, I was so nervous about being away from home for so long, but now I am sad to go back! I have really found a new family here with the 20 other students in my program, and I will always be thankful for all of the ways they helped me become a better version of myself. Now that it is nearly time for me to leave, I am able to do a lot of reflecting about the life changing experience I have just had. I got to travel all around Europe with my new best friends, I got to learn so much about the Spanish culture and lifestyle, and I got so much better at speaking Spanish, too! I know that I will be able to take all of the lessons I’ve learned here in Spain and apply them back in my life in the United States. I’ll miss my Spanish life and I’ll never forget all of the incredible memories I made here!
