Portraits and Street Photography

Here are a few photos from my year abroad in 2011-2012. While I was studying at Universidad Complutense de Madrid, I traveled throughout Spain and visited Greece,

France and Italy.​

The passionate life and history of Spain and the Spanish people became one I grew fond of as I walked the cobble-stoned streets, ate tapas and pinxos, heard music echo from ancient church acoustics and performed in a Spanish choir and theater.  ​

 

I travel as often as I can, sharing my wanderlust moments on Instagram and Facebook. I look forward to expanding my travels and diving into more blogging soon. Enjoy!
