Estamos en la playa!!!! We made it and we are all very happy to be staying on the beach to cool off in the Mediterranean!

Almost immediately after arriving we rushed up to the caves to see one of the largest stalagtites of the world! From here we headed back to the hotel to swim and sunbathe. 

We enjoyed a delicious buffet dinner before heading in for an early night. We will need our rest for kayaking tomorrow morning. 



After relaxing by the pool in Sevilla, we took a long stroll through the winding streets of Sevilla. We visited the Plaza de España and the Alcazar before landing at our Paella dinner! After dessert we challenged the students to lead the way back to our hotel with the map! This is no easy task in Sevilla as the steets are very small, with many curves and very strange names! However, the group worked together and brought us back to home base. 




Agur/Adiós San Sebastián

Today we said our goodbyes to our incredible host families in San Sebastián! As we headed to our flight from Bilboa to Sevilla we shared lots of stories and photos! But, the photos say it all! Enjoy….





Hola San Sebastián 

Off to San Sebastián we go…..Today we had a very early start to jump on our two trains to San Sebastián! As you can see from the photos we were a tired bunch. However, we pushed through and were immediately embraced by the host families at the station!
The families were very excited to meet our group and have many fun plans for the week!

This is going to be an incredible experience for all!

After many hugs and photos, all the students headed out with their families to grab some lunch and get settled into their new homes!

I’ll be checking in with the students every day by phone/WhatsApp or email. 

There won’t be any blog posts until we reconvene as a group next Sunday! 

Agur (adiós in Baque)!! Sarah 


Salamanca Saturday Last day

Today we said our godbye’s to the beautiful Salamanca! In the morning a few of us made our last visit to the Garden of Calixto y Melibea. After our last dorm lunch some students went shopping while the others made one last visit to the river. 

For dinner we all went out to a delicious Italian restaurant followed by a dramatized tour of the cathedral and some Smooey (yogurt). 

Now we are doing our last minute packing before our early morning train ride to San Sebastián tomorrow! 

We are all a bit sad to say goodbye to Salamanca, but very excited for our next adventure. 

Hasta luego, 

Sarah y Patricia
