Catching up…

My walk on the way to school

Hi everyone! So, last week was our first full week of classes. It was a bit stressful, but relieving to fall into a schedule again. This weekend, we travelled to Sevilla and Cordoba (future blog post). Tonight, I’m going to catch up a bit on daily life and some fun things that happened last week!

During Semana Santa (Holy Week), most, if not all, schools in Europe are on Spring Break. A friend and I have been trying to plan a trip to a neighboring country. After lots of help from her fuzzy housemates, especially the puppy…

…we planned a trip to Copenhagen- Denmark here we come! It was a difficult, lengthy affair that involved numerous plans, but I’m so happy one plan came together in the end.

Later that day, something absolutely unprecedented happened in the city of Granada- IT SNOWED! Those of you currently experiencing snowstorms may be unimpressed, but here it’s a really really really big deal! It snows in the mountainous areas here, but rarely/never in the city itself. My roommate and I were so excited that we danced outside on the balcony as the snow fell 😄

On Tuesday, Alison and I headed out on another adventure: ice skating! After a bit of a walk and a few wrong turns, we found ourselves at Don Patín, the local ice skating rink. Skating was so much fun!! It was a bit more difficult than one might imagine because the skates were hockey skates, not traditional ice skating, but we would definitely go again.

PSA on Tuesdays, there’s a deal: for 4 euros, you gain admission, public skating for an hour, and skates.

A few days this week, I holed up in cafes seeking warmth and doing homework. In the process, I may have succumbed to purchasing some delicious hot chocolate, which was definitely worth it!

Look- the city is all decorated for día de San Valentín!

Happy early Valentine’s Day everyone 🙂
