First, I have to tell you how much I appreciate the Terry Foundation, who gave me this opportunity to go to Seville for study abroad. Without this funding, I would never had such wonderful experiences. Seville is a attractive city; it not only has centuries-old history, but also the great humanity of the people who live there. Time flashed back to the first day I arrived there. I can clearly see one of the largest cathedrals when I was several thousand feet above the ground. The cathedral was built in 1402, and it is also the burial site of Christopher Columbus.
The meals time between Seville and United States are very different, but you will always able to find food in the street. Tapas is one of the most popular foods in this city, it's like a snack, or a sample of the main dishes. The prices are very acceptable, and usually cost around 2 to 5 euros . If you want to hang out with friend outside of the host family, you can order several tapas and share with your friends. It is very convenient to stay with a host family while you're studying abroad in Seville as well. I heard Seville is only program that has TTU center outside of United States - until Costa rice was added this summer.
Staying at host family's house, saves you a lot money, plus you don't have to worry about the meals each day. The host family will help you do laundry twice a week and clean your room as well. Times flies when you study abroad, I would recommend everyone make the plans for both academic and funs. During this trip, I also visited Paris besides the school sponsored field trip. It was most amazing trip I had ever gone on.
My friend Logan and I both decided to go to Paris for 3 days because the airplane tickets were on sale. We were very excited about this trip , and planned it out a week ahead. We went to many famous place in Paris. Such as Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Arch, a;d many other places. We saw Mona Lisa Smile, which is totally different that the online image, it is smaller than we thought.
I can't really think any negative side to go to study abroad. The world outside is yet to be seen. Why don't you try it?
