I started writing this post a while ago and just continued it recently.  Enjoy! Back in May: On Sunday the 17th, I left Madrid to travel with my grandparents.  We spent two days in Berlin, and on Wednesday, we began the river cruise portion of our trip. I was very impressed with Grand Circle (the […]

My last final was on Wednesday, the 13th.  I remember feeling relieved when I turned it in as I normally do at the end of final exams – it’s a good feeling to have zero academic responsibilities after the stress of studying for finals.  However, as soon as I walked out the classroom door, it […]

In case you were wondering, our picnic on Saturday was a success.  We hung out in the park, ate lunch, and played Frisbee for about three hours. However, the most exciting thing that happened this week is that my parents came to visit.  They flew into Barcelona on Thursday morning.  I took an overnight train […]

Well, okay, so I lied—but after two weeks of trekking through four cities and two islands, sleeping in hostels and airport terminals, living out of a well-worn duffel and hauling it on ferries, trains, buses, and endless walks, it sure feels like it.

Hello from Spain! My name is Isaac Lavine – I’m a sophomore chemical engineering major from Amherst, Massachusetts. This semester, I’ve gone with almost half of the sophomore engineering world to Madrid, España, to study at Saint Louis University in Madrid. The other half of the sophomore engineers recently arrived in Bremen, and may freeze […]

Where is the Corned Beef?

I had a very un-Irish Saint Patrick’s Day while here in Spain. Instead of watching a traditional St. Patrick’s Day parade and enjoying a delicious Irish corn beef and cabbage meal, I attended a traditional flamenco dance show and snacked on Spanish tapas. Lafayette had arranged for the Madrid students to attend this show and […]
