3 Unforgettable Weeks in Spain

0

-By Hailey Seaman

Going to Spain from June 24 to July 17 was the scariest, craziest, most incredible thing I've ever done. Prior to this trip, I had never been outside of the country, and even though going on exchange was going to be really out of my comfort zone, I was so excited. 

Becoming a Local Spaniard

My Month in Bordeaux, France

0

In France, little things were different at first: the way the milk is packaged, what brands of laundry detergent they use, and more. Even with the small changes, I was astounded at how similarly people in Bordeaux and people in Portland live. Every region in the world is a little different but the people stay the same everywhere.

Last Day in Paris

0

Our last day in Paris was spent visiting the Musée d'Orsay, riding a ride in the Jardin des Tuileries, walking and exploring the Marais, Place des Voges, Le Centre George Pompidou, and Les Halles. We finished the day with a traditional French dinner in the Marias!

Spanish Camp

0

On Saturday we wrapped up an amazing week of Spanish camp in beautiful Manuel Antonio. We had a wonderful time surfing, visiting the national park, zip-lining, getting to know Costa Rican culture with our host families, and even celebrating the Fourth of July. 

The Eiffel Tower

0

On Monday we went to the Eiffel Tower and saw it from all angles - from underneath and from across the river at the Place du Trocadero. 

Paris in the Rain

0

We went up to Montmartre and visited Sacré Cœur, where we had a great view of the city!

Friday at the Ropes Course

0

 

Our last weekday in Tours-swinging through the trees.  Everyone had a ton of fun, especially zooming across the lake!  Sophie dipped too low and got soaked!  Another super hot, humid day.

Clos-Lucé

0

 

A lovely (but hot & humid ) afternoon spent at Clos-Lucé, where Leonard DaVinci spent his last years.  A great combination of his art and engineering that our students really enjoyed exploring.

Fairy Tale Castle

0

 

An awesome château visit to Rigny-Ussé where Charles Perrault lived and wrote a number of famous fairy tales, Sleeping  Beauty being among the most well-known.
