Our last day in Spain, and we were all ready to head back to Longwood! Our eleven days in Spain turned out to be quite an amazing time as we fell in love with the beautiful historic cities, architecture, and Mediterranean flora. After visiting 6 different major cities (North and South along the eastern coast of Spain), we were able to fully experience the Spanish Culture. This study abroad trip was a great experience, and we were able to learn much from our garden visits.
Friday morning we left our hotel at 8 AM for our 12:30 flight, with our bags weighing more in olive oil than they did of clothes. At the Madrid airport we parted with three of our classmates (Emma, Deb, and Gavin) who were traveling on to England for a visit.
Our plane departed without delay, and we arrived safely in Philadelphia around 3:30 pm Eastern U.S. time (9:30 pm Spain time).
We are all very excited to be back at Longwood Gardens, however slightly confused as to the current time and day. Thank you for following our travels through Spain; we sincerely hope you enjoyed reading all of our posts. We invite you to attend our”Brown Bag” highlighting our travels through Spain, which we hope to schedule near the end of the month.
