I just want to start out by saying that I miss you all so much! As many of you know I am studying abroad this semester in Sevilla, Spain (or Seville as the americans say), and brother Hannah Marcheschi is my roommate. Living in Spain for the past two months has been the best experience of my life, so if you are debating studying abroad - DO IT. The city of Sevilla is the most beautiful place I have ever been, so if you've never been please come visit. I am about half way through my program and I have been to Madrid, Toledo, Cádiz, Barcelona, Málaga, Córdoba, Granada, and Gibraltar, a British territory connected to the south of Spain. This past weekend, about 13 of our brothers studying abroad all met up in Dublin, Ireland to celebrate St. Pats the Irish way! I have been some pretty amazing places, but getting to spend the weekend with my brothers that I missed so much made it my best weekend abroad by far! For future study abroad brothers, I have two pieces of advice for you. First, plan a weekend trip with all of the abroad brothers that semester. Whether you continue the St. Pat's tradition in Ireland or not, meet up with them somewhere because it is so heartwarming and amazing to see them. Second, while abroad, use Bla Bla car! It is basically a long distance Uber. I have used it to get to other cities in Spain many times and it is so so cheap, so use it! Hopefully these two things help you as much as they helped me. Thanks for reading my letter from abroad, and I can't wait to be reunited with you all this summer and fall!
