Fully Immersed in Barcelona

December 13, 2013

As I reflect on the last four months that I have spent living and studying in Barcelona, I realize it turned out to be an experience far from my expectations.  Instead, studying abroad in Barcelona turned out to be even more unforgettable and amazing than I could have ever imagined.  I not only learned the […]
