Studying Abroad with No Regrets! Jan14

Studying Abroad with No Regrets!

I spent 106 magical days in the fall of 2014 traveling to places I had only ever read about and imagined. I know I will miss Europe dearly, and the pain from leaving will smart for years to come, but this entire experience was well worth it, and I will carry the memories with me forever! It would be impossible for me to pick my very favorite trip of the semester. My favorites include Spain, Germany, Paris, and London. I loved the beaches and culture of Spain, the...
