During my time interning in Spain, I was also able to travel to help increase my cultural experience. I was able to travel to Madrid, Barcelona, Toledo, and Ibiza. It was an amazing experience traveling to each destination and experiencing the different cultures and atmosphere in each place
From the Mercado de San Miguel
The Madrid trip was a planned trip during our first weekend there with everyone in the program. We stayed in a hostel which was a first for me and was in interesting experience; luckily, we didn’t have to stay with any strangers. After arriving to Madrid and getting settled in, we took a quick tour of the sites around our hostel so we know where to get a quick bite and explore. I went to get food at the Mercado de San Miguel and it was an amazing experience. There was so much food there: fresh seafood, tapas, empanadas, , and everything I tried was delicious. The atmosphere kind of reminded me of a farmer’s market, which is very popular in the U.S. After we ate, we walked through Madrid to go site-seeing and shopping. We ended up going to the Palacio de Cibeles, we went to the top floor and was able to see all of Madrid. The view was amazing and just so pretty.
