If you were to sum up your Barcelona experience in one to two words, what would you say? My Barcelona Experience is…

Life changing!

What was your favorite tour, day trip, or cultural activity? Why?

The cooking class! It was a lot of fun and I actually learned a lot from it.

What was something you were surprised to learn about Barcelona or Spain? Or what aspect of the country or city were you least expecting?

I certainly wasn’t expecting the city to be as exciting as it is! There is always something going on (usually multiple things at once!) which genuinely blew me away.

What is one piece of advice that you have for future students coming to Barcelona?

Try to make friends with locals!

Why was Barcelona SAE the right program for you?

Because BSAE did everything in their power to make sure the students had a great experience. The staff members were personable and genuinely care about their students, which I appreciate so much!
