reminiscentia

January 10, 2011

Tomorrow is the first day of the spring semester here in Charleston. As happy as I am to be back in the place I love with the people I missed so terribly, I can’t evade reminiscing about my European adventures. It doesn’t really help when every familiar face asks, “How was being abroad?”. But then again, why would I want to forget? I’ve decided to continue posting more photos I have taken, just for kicks. Happy New Year!

Old City, New Faces

September 20, 2010

After a long weekend of club hopping and sleeping our days away, a few of my 6 room mates and I decided we would make our Sunday somewhat productive. The day started around 3 with a little photo walk through the old city (Gothic Area) with a break or two for some coffee and pastries. My love for croissants is growing rapidly and I haven’t even made it to Paris yet– things could get ugly. We explored the narrow streets, dodging a few mobbish processions in honor of Le Mercé… a festival starting this upcoming week with music, fireworks, human towers, and 20 foot dolls paraded throughout the streets (pictures soon to come). Paella was calling our name as we passed by the marina in Barceloneta and we were able to catch some of the Barca match. The night ended with an adventure in search of the fountains that lived “somewhere off the green line”. Great. Eventually we did find them though and it was completely worth the vacant/creepy metro ride.

casi!

As I sit here and realize that I only have 3 more weeks before I head off to Spain, I can’t believe how fast this summer has flown by! I just returned from an amazing weekend down in Charleston, my second home, and am now fully prepared to ship myself off and experience whatever is awaiting me overseas. This is going to be my last post until I start the real deal, once I am settled in. I figure this is more or less a final “visual checklist” (I would much rather look at a compilation of photographs than a stack of words)  than anything interesting for you all to read.

Ok…maybe I can live without the Vicky Christina Barcelona love-triangle but I do love her hat.

Adios!

Amor

June 24, 2010

From the name of this post, you would probably assume that I was going to write about all the gorgeous Spanish and European men I hope to meet while abroad. While I do admit that I am looking forward to that aspect of my trip, if you know me at all then you know that I am a firm believer that that AMOR is something that just happens…and looking for it is the worst way to go about it.

Food on the other hand is something almost everyone has come to love and personally, I believe we have a pretty sturdy relationship. But don’t get me wrong… camarero caliente  + tapas = the start of a potentially excellent night.
