In addition to applying to Cambridge I feel that the bravest/best decision I have made was to attend a Spanish summer camp as a native english speaker – not only did this throw me out of my comfort zone but I made tons of friends from all over the world who I still talk to two years later. So when me and one of my best friends from high school organized spending a week in the Southern Spain I just had to contact my camp roommate to see if she’d be at home in Seville at this point in the summer. SHE WAS!
Just over a month later following a rather comfortable two and half hour train journey (thumbs up Spanish long distance trains) we arrived in Seville. Upon reuniting with my roommate we had tapas and she run us through her thorough itinerary for the day (7 hours) we were spending in her city. Highlights for me including wandering through the Jewish quarter, eating gorgeous ice cream (snickers and kinder bueno) and seeing some Game of Thrones locations (anyone else super excited to see Dorne?).
