Hola everyone, my name is Jacob Zollinger and I finally made it to Spain! I got in yesterday afternoon and proceeded to promptly pass out until this morning, so I haven’t seen too much yet. International travel is exhausting! Today is my day of exploration so I will try to keep everyone posted on how that’s going. I want to look around the campus and then if I’m feeling adventurous go explore Barcelona a bit!

I have been waiting for this experience for soo long now, and there is a lot I want to get out of it. I really want to be more comfortable with speaking Spanish after this experience. I took 2 years of it in middle school, and I was pretty good at it, but it has been years since I have had to speak it. I hope it comes back quickly. I also really want to get some more experience in coding from my internship so that I can be more competitive in my professional life. But, the thing I want more than anything is to experience a new culture and to travel! I love traveling I can’t wait to see where this summer takes me. For now adios! I’m off to find some food.
