I officially have my first week of living in Granada, Spain under my belt! What a beautiful city with so many things to offer! In this blog post, I will share some of the NEW things I have experienced in Granada!
Lema nueva (New Motto)
Say “YES” to everything that is SAFE!
I have decided that this is my motto for my semester here in Granada. A semester feels like a pretty long time, but when we received a singular sheet of printer paper that had our entire semester mapped out, I began to realize how quickly time is going to fly. So, my motto for this semester is to say yes to every opportunity or experience that is safe (you’re welcome for adding that last part, Dad).
Amigos nuevos (New Friends)
Comidas/Bebidas nuevas (New Foods/Drinks)
The drinking culture in Europe is super interesting! It is much more casual here and it is frowned upon to drink alcohol without also eating food at the same time. Because drinking is such a large part of the culture here, there are many drinks available that offer various amounts of alcohol so that everyone can partake!
Vistas Nuevas (New Views)
It is so crazy to take in and process all of the views here! Do not fear, Hope College people, nothing could ever beat the Campus Ministries front porch, the barstools at Lemonjello’s with friends, the egg chair in my cottage (shoutout Pieter’s Cott girls!), or the top floor of Western Sem Library, but these views are pretty incredible!
