In this week's post, Nathan shares five of his favorite study spots that will get you out and about in Dublin.

It’s been a little too easy for me to forget, with everything else going on in Dublin, that I'm here to study. Sure, I attend lectures every day, often for much longer than at my home college. But switching from the weekly projects and essay writing of college in the US to exactly one paper and exam per course at Griffith College hasn't exactly helped... Yet, with assignment week approaching, I can’t help but dread the prospect of spending hours typing essays on my computer with the hustle and bustle of the city around me and the weather shifting from winter to spring. There has to be a way to learn and study without missing out on everything going on in Dublin, right? 

Here are five unique study spots that will get you out-and-about in the city!

48 Hours in Barcelona

In this week's post, Danya shows us around Barcelona in a short visit.

While studying abroad leads to many opportunities to travel and explore other parts of Europe, there is only limited time to do so. My most recent trip was to Barcelona, Spain.

Overall, Barcelona was full of surprises. I didn’t expect the city to be that big, I didn’t expect the food to be so amazing, and I definitely didn’t expect to be standing in the pouring rain for 30 minutes trying to get a taxi. I learned a lot about the big city in only a small amount of allotted time. With the suggestions of my friend, Megan, who studied there last semester, I was able to hit all the touristy areas and get insider advice on the best cafes, restaurants, and clubs all under 48 hours. It was helpful that I’m a obnoxiously fast-paced walker, but it most, most helpful that I planned my trip out in advance.

Thursday

9am: My hostel, called Casa Barcelo, was located near the Gràcia neighborhood where a lot of the new and trendy restaurants are located, making it quick and easy to find a nice café. After walking down a few blocks, I ran into a cute, beach-themed café called Brunch & Cake. I recognized the name from the list Megan sent me and was instantly sold when I found out they served smoothies.
