More Travels in Europe

Living in Spain gave me the opportunity to travel to nearby countries as well.  I had friends studying in Paris and Florence and I was able to stay with them and have them show me around their cities.  I also traveled to Portugal and London with the girls I lived with and met in Spain, and I traveled to Malta with my friend Christen who visited me in Spain.

Besides these amazing travels to other countries, I also had quite a few people come to visit me in Spain.  My friends Malvina, Inbar, and Christen came to see me.  You saw these people in the photos I just posted. And my mom came to visit me as well as my friends Eitan and Casey.  The five months I spent in Europe were a great experience and I am grateful for everyone I shared these memories with!
