Saying Goodbye

This is my final week in London and it is a very bittersweet week. I just came home from a trip to Rome where I spent it with my friend who lives there. I met her while I was over here studying, we had the same classes and became very close friends. She is the first person I have had to say goodbye to, and it has made me realize what an amazing adventure I have been on. I have been able to learn things about different cultures, not...

Destination: Granada, Nicaragua (pre-departure blog)

My name is Lexi Schrobilgen and I am going to be a junior at The University of Alabama. I am studying abroad for 2 weeks in Nicaragua, where I will be working in a medical clinic and exploring the country. Quite honestly, this trip is one of the reasons that I chose Alabama. Studying abroad has always been something that is extremely important to me and so when I was looking at colleges I wanted to ensure that the one I picked had a...
