My last couple months on exchange were jam packed with traveling to different cities, meeting new people, and cramming for ﬁnal exams. I had a few weeks off after the semester was over before I had to return back to Canada and was able to travel to some of the major tourist hot spots. My ﬁrst stop was Paris where I visited the famous Notre Dame Cathedral, saw the Tour de Eiffel for the ﬁrst time (it’s a lot bigger than I thought it would be), and generally just ate a lot of sugar crepes. My next stop was in Amsterdam, where I ate the most delicious food I’ve had in Europe.

Here are some places I’ve been to in Spain:
