Study Abroad all over Europe

Christmas Pops Up All Over Europe

Stevan Stankovich ’12 - Christmas has arrived in Europe! Everywhere I have gone for the past week one could see people putting up Christmas lights, trees, and decorations getting ready for the holiday season, and then on Friday night all the lights came on and it was brilliant. Luckily for me I was in Spain when this happened, and let me just tell you Espania goes all out for Christmas. I have never seen so many lights and so many types of lights then I saw in Segovia, Toledo, and Madrid it was simply magical. If you add that to the Christmas markets in Madrid you are in Christmas heaven.

I visited Spain this past weekend as you have noticed from above and it was incredible there. Everyone is so helpful and it is truly a beautiful and authentic country. Our hostel alone looked like some historic mansion from the 13th century, and the towns of Segovia, and Toledo were incredible. To get to see the sunset over the town of Segovia while your sitting on a hill with a couple of close friends is awe-inspiring. Then to see the most beautiful cathedral in the world that I have ever seen in Toledo was an amazing ending to a perfect trip. Also if one wants to party there is no better place for it then Madrid when they start at midnight with Sangria and go until 6 or 7 in the morning, and the best part about it is that it is cheap.

When I came back from Spain I was in a winter wonderland. Harlaxton and the greater part of the UK are experiencing record snow falls. So if one adds that on top of all the decorations in the castle it is the world’s ideal Christmas card.

Well I am sad to say my time in England is almost up and I already desperately want to come back. I am a football fanatic now (and it is football not soccer), I love pubs, and not being able to walk down the hallways in a 19th century castle in my pajamas will all be missed. I will miss being able to jump on a plane and travel to Paris, Ireland, Spain, or Amsterdam cheaply. I will also miss incredible public transportation that I can get anywhere in the UK within a matter of hours fairly cheaply.

I will miss the British faculty and hearing British accents everywhere I go. However most of all I am glad to have made life long friends both here with mates in the UK and bros in the States that I will remain friends with for the rest of my life.

Looking to backpack Europe need advice!

by adventure_extraordinaire

Hey all.
I'm planning a trip to Europe to study abroad for three months but figured while I'm over there i might as well make a dream come true and do some back packing post school. I've already looked a little bit into hostel's, but need more advice as to which ones are worth my time and a little bit of financial advice would be nice. I'm not leaving until January so i have a bit of time and I'm watching the price of the pound and the euro so its kind of hard to estimate how much money i should save up due to the constant change in exchange rate, before going over there, school is covered as is my round trip flight and I'd like to travel from about may until august 2010

Did it through temple

Temple tyler study abroad in Rome. regular tuition + living expenses (which are high). it was temple's own school and teachers, so it was all american students. the classes did not compare to the one's at the regular tyler campus...the main point of the program was to be in Rome.
from what i understand from some kids i know that went to school at the university of rome, it's very cheap by our standards, but because of that classes are very over crowded.
plus, you'd need to work a lot to get you some Euros because of our poor exchange rate.
i think it would be a very expensive feat unless you wind up with an abundance of grants
