30 Day Blog Challenge : Day 8

Day 8 : A Place I've Traveled To

The summer before I finished my senior year at The University of Alabama, I studied abroad in Madrid, Spain for 6 weeks. It was one of the best experiences I've ever had! I learned A LOT about what's really important and what its like to live without life necessities...well what I consider life necessities. There were about 60 of us from BAMA that went on this trip. We lived right outside of Madrid in the town of Alcala de Henares and traveled on the weekends. It was an AWESOME experience! 

I lived with my college friend, Lauren, in a home where the house mom was not only a cop, but also owned a bar...El Presidente Feliz. I spent quite a bit of time at that bar :) Here are some pictures of us throughout Spain and my trip there. 

At Senor Burro...or Mister Donkey for us Americans! A favorite local hangout for our group!

With my buddy, Parker, on top of one of the castles in Segovia

A group of us out for a night in Alcala

At La Granja!

Awesome bridge in Toledo. One of my favorite pictures from the trip

View from our room in Alicante at the beach! Sure was a good time and not such a good idea to drink a whole thing of vodka and gatorade :)
