It is now more than halfway through my program in Barcelona, and my time remaining is starting to decrease rapidly. Looking back on all the experiences I have had in just 1 short month, it is crazy for me to think about going back to reality in the US. However, I know that I will return home with so much more knowledge and skills, placing me higher than others in my competitive search for a job.
This past weekend, I took part in one of the most thrill-seeking festivals in my life; Running with the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain. It was the craziest traditional experience I have ever seen or been a part of, seeing an entire city break out into chaos. People of all nationalities everywhere, raining sangria, good vibes, and my best friends. It was a memorable experience, for all of us I’m sure. Aside from the festival, we got to stay at a campsite near the beach, and it may have easily been the most beautiful scenery I have seen in my time in Barcelona. It was absolutely like paradise. I have such a finer view on life because of this one trip to Pamplona, and my understanding for what happiness truly is is much more clear.
