How is April already here?! I can't believe I have less than two months left in Spain. This semester has been flying by so fast, it makes me sad! April will be a busy but good month, as I have a lot of trips planned. Here's what I loved during March...

I spent last weekend in Valencia, a coastal Spanish city that hosts a huge festival each spring known as Las Fallas (or Falles in Valenciano, the local dialect). I went with the group of students that I'm studying with to check out this tradition. It was crowded and a little crazy at times, but still fun!

I learned an important lesson this week... that traveling can be unpredictable and sometimes you just have to let go of your expectations and be flexible. Because, sometimes, when you're supposed to spend the week in Budapest and Prague, your flight ends up being cancelled and you get stuck in Barcelona all week...

Since it's such a monumental moment, I find myself looking back on the lessons I learned during my teenage years and how they got me to where I am today. One lesson in particular stands out to me as the most important...

I don't know why but I always find it interesting to read about people's daily lives, so today I've decided to do a "Day in My Life" post! I thought this would be especially fun to do as I'm studying abroad, so I can look back on it later and remember my days here in Granada, Spain.

Lately I've been on a kick to refresh my Instagram news feed and find some fresh, inspiring accounts to follow. Since I'm currently living abroad, I'm drawn to accounts of fellow travelers. I've found some great ones recently, and I've also been especially loving some old favorites. Here are 11 Instagram accounts to follow for some wanderlust inspiration...
