One of the main reasons I studied Spanish was to travel more of the world and visit Spain. I loved Spain for so many reasons; the passionate people, the laid back culture, and especially the ancient architecture. One spring day, my Spanish Culture and Civilization class took a field trip to the Ruta de los Castillos(Route of the Castles).
We had our packed lunch on top of a castle, with a snow-covered mountain range backdrop, saw the famous Segovian 2000 year old aqueduct, and visited a second castle all within thirty miles! The historic sense of Europe is fascinating compared to modern United States and so worth the effort of learning Spanish and planning a life changing trip!
If you are a teenager looking to study abroad, or have a teenage child, I highly recommend sending them abroad for an unforgettable travel and educational experience. One semester can change your child’s path in life for the better by giving them a sense of independence and worldly perspective. The price is not as out of range as one might think, and there are savings plans, and scholarships you can enroll in if you’re planning ahead of time!
Email me if you need help planning a trip to Spain or if you’re looking into studying abroad or sending a child abroad. Travel opens doors for all people and helps us be more worldly, wise, and compassionate individuals.
