“Granada was an experience of a lifetime! I had a wonderful host family who took care of my vegetarian food needs. They were essential in figuring out how to navigate the city during our first few days. Our onsite director is an incredible human being. She was a wonderful tour guide during all of our exhibitions throughout Granada and the surrounding areas. A little over a year has passed, and there is not a single day where I don’t think of my experiences in Granada. I am itching to go back and visit all of the wonderful lifelong friends I have made in such a beautiful little city. Granada is and will forever be my home away from home. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat!
P.S. Don’t be surprised when you come home and respond to everything with: “Vale.” You’re stuck with this saying forever.
