Since I’ve been in Spain since the last day of May in 2011, I’ve gone on three trips: one to England to visit my family, one to Olot in the north of Spain to see the volcanoes, and one to California for Christmas.

And now it looks like my travel schedule is going to get seriously busy! Here’s what I’ve got in store.



  • March 1-3: Castilla y León (SalamancaSegovia, and Ávila)
  • March 17: Valencia, to go to Las Fallas which includes lots of fireworks and setting things on fire
  • April 25-29: Sevilla, to go see the famous Feria de Abril
  • April 30-May 5: Ibiza!
  • June: Berlin and Madrid with my parents

I’m lucky that I get to go on trips with the Erasmus program, because they always end up being sooo much cheaper than going on your own. My trip this past weekend to Castilla y León, for example, ended up costing about the same as a flight there, but included housing, food, tours with local guides, and parties.

Ibiza and Valencia are both Erasmus trips. The Ibiza one involves a cruise from Barcelona to Ibiza, a mini-cruise to a smaller island, and entrance to approximately a million clubs and parties. It should be a calm, tranquil week on the Mediterranean with no craziness, right?

I’m a little nervous about going back to Sevilla because I had such an awful time there when I studied abroad, so we’ll see how that goes. I can’t really complain though, I’m super lucky to be able to see the Feria with a local friend. 

So keep checking back over these next couple months for lots of fun travel entries and pictures! Later this week, read about Castilla y León.
