Heads in the Clouds on a Hike up Montserrat

Nov 1, 2018 10:39:00 AM / by Maya Crawford

In this week's post, Maya recalls her excursion to Montserrat in Barcelona with the CAPA group, from a beautiful and strenuous hike into the clouds to seeing views of Barcelona and hearing the Montserrat boys choir sing.  

This past weekend CAPA hosted another My Global Cities event. This time, it was a trip to the mountains of Montserrat! Before coming to Barcelona I had never heard of this place before, and had no idea what was in store for me upon arrival.

It was really cool seeing Barcelona during sunrise, when the world was still sleeping and no cars were on the road. This sounds so simple, but it truly is an interesting experience to see a place you are used to seeing in constant motion, completely still.

What Classes at CAPA Barcelona Are Actually Like

Oct 19, 2018 2:59:00 PM / by Maya Crawford

In this week's post, Maya goes through the details of her class schedule, field trips, workloads, and expected attendance, explaining what academics with CAPA Barcelona are actually look like. 

A lot of times when people think about studying abroad, they are only picturing themselves traveling, going out, and experiencing new things in their chosen country. While this is a big part of studying abroad there, IS actual studying that you will be doing! The good thing about CAPA is that all the classes are held at the CAPA center in the middle of the city, so there is no getting lost finding your classes across a huge campus or any confusing language barriers.
