The big day is getting closer and closer and I am finally beginning to realize that I will be abroad in Europe for 3 weeks! For two weeks of my travel, I will be in Cluny, France (wine country) studying the Microbiology and Culture of Wine and Cheese while the other week is divided between Barcelona, Spain and Amsterdam, Netherlands! I have never traveled to Europe before and this is a great opportunity to explore! The luxuries that we surround ourselves with now, are going to disappear as soon as we take off. The comfort of not depending on wifi for cell phones usage such as navigation or communication, relying on unfamiliar public transportation, a change in the time zone, and going to a country where the native language is not English is both intimidating and exciting, but I think I’m up for the test.
First stop on the list: Barcelona!
