Spending Orientation Day Around Barcelona

Taylor Atkinson checks in from Barcelona and captures her first day of study abroad with an orientation day around the city. Join Taylor as she kicks off this experience!

Today was orientation day! I met all the other CAPA students and teachers and we all ate a traditional Spanish lunch together. Afterwards, they gave us a walking tour of the Gothic Quarter. We saw a human tower, ancient Roman ruins, government buildings, and so much more! My roommates and I grabbed some delicious sandwiches after the tour and ate them by the pier. It was a great day!
