1. What has your experience abroad taught you about the rest of the world?
My personal experience abroad taught me that, although we are over 4,000 miles apart, we share many of the same things. We may eat different things and speak different languages than other countries, but when it comes down to it, it is about the person. The rest of the world seemed just as excited to learn about my culture, as I was to learn about theirs. My experience taught me that the world is either one big adventure, or it is nothing at all. It is important to take things as they come, especially when traveling the world. What happens to you, makes you who you are today. I learned to accept the things I cannot change and enjoy everything else.
2. These places/restaurants/sites were a-may-zing! You should not miss them:
One of the best views that everyone raves about in Madrid is at Circulo de Bellas Artes! In addition to a great view, they have great food and drinks. It is definitely a must do, even if you're in Madrid for a short time. When it comes to fun, there is nothing that compares to a Real Madrid game. Every person in the stadium is there to have a good time and watch even better soccer. This coming together of so many people for the game is a prime example of Spain's culture.
