Traveling Abroad

Over spring break, I was part of a group that went to France and Spain. We spent the first two days in Paris, where we visited Sacré Coeur, Notre Dame, the Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower. Half of the group also went to the Catacombs, where approximately 6 million people are buried.

A quick plane ride took us to Barcelona, where we visited the Sagrada Familia, the Parc Güell, the Cathedral of Barcelona, La Boqueria, and a beach in Sitges. One night, many people tried calamari for the first time. After three nights, we boarded the bus for the seven hour drive to Madrid. Halfway between Barcelona and Madrid, we stopped at the Monasterio de Piedra, where we walked through the park.

In Madrid, we saw the famous Puerta del Sol, and the Prado museum. Later, part of the group walked to the Estación de Atocha, where we saw over 100 turtles. We also went shopping in the Plaza Mayor before finishing our tour with a tapas night, where we sampled tortilla de patatas, jamón, and pimientos. Finally, we tried churros con chocolate. The next morning, we woke up bright and early to return home. (Submitted by Megan Vladoiu)
