Barcelona, Spain

18 Dec

Barcelona is a very “fun” city to study in, by fun I mean excellent nightlife. You could go out every single night of the week, never go to the same bar twice and have the time of your life. However, my roommates and our group of friends have dubbed Espit Taberna’s, a small bar with a familiar bartender, our go to. On any given night we may be the only group in the place; crowded in the back playing “Cheers Governor”, leaning against the bar convincing friendly Gustavo (the bartender) we are the coolest American’s he’ll ever meet, or playing a game of beer pong. We’re loyal to our favorite spots.

I’ve discovered a nearby market that is awesome for all produce purchases! Super fresh and super cheap! I even managed to find peanut butter which, as my roommate Kristy likes to say, “just fills the cracks of the heart”. All you American’s who haven’t spent extended amounts of time outside of the country can take my word for it that you will have a new found appreciation for peanut butter!

I’ve been having the time of my life!!! Seriously. Words cannot describe how happy I am with the decision to study abroad. I highly reccomend this to anyone and everyone in the whole world. The world is beautiful!!! Magnificent!! But there are no guidebooks on the planet that can truly prepare you for moving across the world. Traveling is one thing..living here is just unbelievable.

It will be 4 weeks on this upcoming Tuesday…1 whole month!! I can proudly say that I’ve had the best day of my life every single day for the past 3 1/2 weeks. & I plan to have an amazing 3 more months!!

On June 3rd, 2012 I went fishing and kayaking in Istan with my friend Joanna and her parents. The scenery was so beautiful and the best part was that we were the only people, except for a few annoying teenagers, within the whole reservoir. Joanna and I were a little hungover after hitting one of our favourite bars, Room 101, for some Caipirinhas so we enjoyed paddling in the kayak. Our guide, Captain Amer, showed us how to fish for bass which is actually hard! We brought a feast of cheese, meat, and fruit, giving us a reason to stop for lunch three times. The scenery was beautiful with mountains surrounding us and crystal blue skies, it’s a must if you get the chance to visit Marbella.

Although the girls unfortunately did not catch any fish, Joanna’s dad was like a fish whisperer and caught five. I will admit that I think I have created an irrational fear to fish. I never want to be the prissy girl but every time the fish was near me I would squeal in such a high pitch that only dogs could hear. This only got worse when it came to killing and gutting the fish, which left me agape. This also made me wonder…..for times like these a boyfriend would come in pretty useful (All macho men may apply :-D ) We were also allowed to bring our catch home for dinner, YUM! Here are some pictures of us two enjoying the Marbella sunshine and Captain Amer’s activities.

Madrid, Spain

22 Jul

My two weeks in Spain with Tiffany were two of the most relaxing weeks I can remember.  Our final days in Madrid consisted of hanging out in the park, enjoying some sunshine, seeing lots of art, and continuing to stalk our favorite Spanish scientist, Ramon y Cajal.  On Thursday, we topped off our Venture Grant by visiting the Instituto de Cajal, the Neuroscience research center started by Cajal himself in 1900 by order of the King.  I like this quote on their website: “Today, the Cajal Institute is prepared to confront the future challenges and to maintain the leading role in neurobiological research in Spain, always keeping in mind that the final destination of knowledge is the well being of the society.”  The fact that the Institute preserves many of Cajal’s important belongings, writings, and awards, and was willing to show them to Tiffany and I, is evidence of this belief about the “final destination of knowledge.”  We spoke with Juan, the researcher in charge of preserving Cajal’s legacy and the author of a book about the Ramon y Cajal family.  Tiffany and I thought we were stalking Cajal, but our efforts were nothing compared to Juan’s experiences.  Through mostly English and quite a bit of Spanglish, Juan told us of Cajal’s desire to be an artist, his eventual persuasion to become a doctor (perhaps in part because he was so naturally gifted at it that he barely had to study), and his eventual fight to force the scientific community to recognize his beliefs about the neuron. In a moment that felt completely unreal, Tiffany and I got to hold Cajal’s 1906 Nobel Prize.
