Barcelona

In Spain by Eller Student

Less than two weeks now I will be in Barcelona, Spain to embark on such an extraordinary experience.  Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could do something like this- living in a foreign country for two months.  On my own.  I am so lucky to have my grandparents loving support and their extremely gracious gift of giving me this opportunity.  Though I tell them all the time, words can’t describe how thankful I am.  I also never pictured myself living in Europe.. I have always dreamt of experiencing the beautiful cultures and historic architecture.. Never in a million years did I think I would be extremely engulfing myself by living, working, and staying there for a whole summer.  I was really actually terrified at first- I would stay up at night with nerves and think about getting lost in a country I know nothing about.. With two weeks away those fears are long gone-only leaving me with excitement, passion, and the hunger for the unknown.  There are many things I want to accomplish in Barcelona.. here’s a few.

Be daring, adventurous

Completely embrace every experience I create

Make new friendships

Learn more about myself

Become even more independent

Take chances
