A German Dream

The summer before coming to Auburn my sister and I decided we were going to spend the entirety of the summer backpacking across Europe.

Serena in Spain

Serena Ussery: Semester Program in Alcala de Henares, Spain 2019 “bee bop boop,” says the robot that I knew as Mr. Crumb Eater. The flat, automatic vacuum needed no help entering my room to pick up my leftover chips. My large paned window is open. Cracked rather, and I can hear my clothes doing whatever […]

Londinium Medley

What are the first things you think of when you hear the word London? What comes to your mind? Is it posh English men and women sipping on some Earl Grey while nibbling on a scone? Is it Queen Elizabeth walking her cute little corgis down the pavement (not sidewalk)? Or is it TV shows […]

Studio In Scandinavia

A Croatia Chronicle

Summer in Salamanca

At the young age of 8, I fell in love with the world and other cultures. I started begging my parents to let me travel anywhere and everywhere they would let me. Before college, I had already traveled abroad many times, so I knew that I wanted to Study Abroad to fully immerse myself into […]

With all of the amazing, unique, and diverse cities I traveled to during the spring semester of 2017, how am I possibly supposed to choose? My home base was the beautiful city of Barcelona, […]
