One Year Later: Operation Andalucia

“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.” -Susan Sontag

A year ago yesterday, I returned from the best four months of my life in Madrid. I can’t believe that experience is already a year in the past, but I still think about it, talk about it, and miss it everyday. Pictures are posted all over my room, I continue to hang out with the friends I made there, and the knowledge I gained has changed my outlook on life and the world forever.

I realized yesterday I had never posted about my last weekend trip of the semester, so I decided to make a belated video slideshow to celebrate the one-year anniversary. It details my Madrid program trip to Andalucía, a region in Southern Spain, during Thanksgiving weekend 2011. We visited the cities of Córdoba, Granada, and Sevilla in four days. Enjoy!

But wait, there’s another motive behind this post besides to finally conclude the documentation of my adventures abroad and the reasoning behind the quote at the top. I will be traveling to ISRAEL in just TWO weeks!!! Thirteenth country, fourth continent I will have been to. It is a birthright trip specifically for communications students, so I plan to revive this blog once again to document my experience. I am extremely excited, as I’m sure you can imagine, and I can’t wait to share!
