Montserrat, Edinburgh, and Dali

It's been awhile since my last blog. Whoops! The less IO blog though, the more I have to talk about on each one.
A program trip to Montserrat, and the St. Benet monastery is definitely one of my highlights so far. Both are beautiful locations in the mountains just outside Barcelona, the fresh air and beautiful views were a welcome change of pace from Barca.
I also made it up to Tibidabo-Barcelona's classic theme park. The views from the top are incredible, arguably the best in the city.

I also made my first trip out of Spain, to good old Edinburgh, Scotland to visit one of my best friends, Katie Corn. She's a Junior at SMC as well. Edinburgh is beautiful, and it was great to be with Katie and have a personal tour of the city. True to form, I forgot my camera. This fact aside, I visited the cafe where J.K Rowling wrote Harry Potter, went to a rugby game, and ate more fried food than I'd care to admit.
This weekend we had another program trip to Figures and Girona, including a stop at the Salvador Dali Museum. The museum is incredible, and the amount of classic Dali art I saw first hand is quite staggering. Girona is beautiful as well, and we had a great afternoon there.
Alas, it was out last Arcadia day excursion, marking the beginning of the end of my study abroad experience. I still have a trip to Morocco to look forward to though. And unfortunately, finals and final papers as well.
