¡ vamos a Barca ! my study abroad adventure begins


Time for a study abroad adventure, which means TIME to get back to blogging! It’s funny to think that I started blogging when I was 16 for a competition I took place in within my summer study abroad program in Biarrtiz, France for three weeks, and since then it has blossomed into a fun, creative life-long hobby and outlet for me.
