I was interested in studying abroad in Barcelona to challenge myself both academically and personally. Prior to the summer 2013 trip, I had never been to Europe. Whenever I saw photographs of sites like the Parc Guell and La Sagrada Familia, I was absolutely in awe. While attending the six week study abroad program at Trinity in Barcelona, I completed an elementary Spanish language course and a course on Catalan history. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to “do” Spain and experience the culture, languages, architecture, and people of Barcelona. M’encanta Barcelona.
