"There are so many [favorite experiences]! Finding this amazing Tapas restaurant in Madrid called "El Tigre," walking through the Puerta del Sol, trying all of the amazing food and learning how to use public transportation."
– Sarah Alexander, studied in Alicante, Spain
"My favorite experience abroad was going on a school trip with the Centro de Idiomas to Las Medulas, a huge mountain with amazing views of the province of Castilla and Leon. After hiking back down the mountain, we took a short drive to a beautiful nearby park surrounded by mountains with a quiet lake in the middle where we kayaked and ate lunch."

– Andre Johnson, studied in Leon, Spain
