About Me

Columbia, Missouri
My traveling closet began halfway across the country three years ago when I left Las Vegas and started my freshman year at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Then it went halfway across the world for a semester abroad in Barcelona, Spain. Now it's back to Mizzou for a final year. I began this blog to detail my European adventures. Though I'm back in the states, the adventures continue.

The Secret Behind the Siesta

It's really quite simple: Spaniards don't sleep. They stay up till the wee hours of the morning and still manage to rise and shine around 7 or sometimes even earlier. Thus, a siesta in the mid-afternoon is necessary to catch up on the needed amount of sleep most people obtain during the night.

Because dinner isn't served until 9 or 10, las discotecas (night clubs) don't even open until midnight. I experienced my first discoteca last night. Sutton hosted a welcome party for all the new study abroad students. One of the girls I went out with knew someone who knew someone important and we managed to get wristbands for the VIP section of the club. Upon entering the VIP section, "All I Do is Win" started playing...how fitting! We didn't leave Sutton until 5:30 am. The club was STILL packed when we left. It was crazy.

On a random note: I booked my flight to Dublin for St. Patty's day! 177 euros...Oof!

On an even random(er) note: Guess who this belongs too?

Answer: My sorority sister Carolyn Guffey

She studied in Barcelona last Spring and I am currently staying with her same host familia! What are the chances!
