Finally Arrived

Buenos días de España!

The last 24 hours have been CRAZY

My flight from St. Louis to Philadelphia took off over an hour late. I thought the flight was only an hour and a half….I thought wrong. If all had gone as planned (which it didn't), I would have been in Philadelphia’s airport with an hour and fifteen minutes to …

I Have Arrived

A travel blog entry by michellesimer

After a full 24 hours of traveling I finally arrived to Barcelona, Spain. Luckily for me, the flight from Germany to Barcelona was full of students in my program. So after the two hour plane ride we all stuck together to go collect luggage and find out what to do from there. I was so excited to see my two huge bags come around on the conveyor belt …

Montserrat, & flamenco in Barce!!!

A travel blog entry by oz09


Today, most of us elected to join the coach for the hour long trip to nearby Montserrat ("serrated Mountain"), and boy were we glad we did! The drive out to Montserrat was a leisurely one, but one which afforded us some terrific views of mountainous countryside, as the accompanying photos testify. Ascending the mountain was no mean feat by our …

Barcelona via Arles, France

Only stops were for morning tea, lunch & at afternoon tea we were finally able to buy a bottle of dark rum from the food stop!! However, the …

Modernisme sights in Barcelona

... and ended up in the square in front of the St. Eulalia cathedral. We had aimed to get there around noon so that we could see the traditional sardana dance take place. While we waited for the musicians to strike up a tune, we browsed the small market that was also on the square. There was some tasty looking nougat at one table so we picked up a bar to sample later. We then headed in to see the cathedral, but mass was about to start so we headed back out again. The sardana ...

    The hotel staff was very patient with us. There was over 100 American students staying there. We stayed two nights. I know for a fact that 90% of us CEA students went out and got as hammered as possible because its legal to drink here at 18. The rooms themselves were spacious. In our room there was a mini-bar, a TV with cable, a big shower, his/her personal stalls, and a hairdryer. I would definitely stay there again.
