The basics

The basics:
Who: Me!
What: A semester studying abroad
When: January 8th- June 28th, 2010
Where: Sevilla, Spain
Why: Academics! I promise.

Like any good college student of this generation, I start my first post with a link to wikipedia to give you some background information on the area in which I will be living and studying for the next six months:

Now that you know a little more about the area, let me state that this is just a tester post to pique your interest. However, I hope that this blog helps me keep in touch with a little more ease while I'm in Sevilla. I will try to update often and record the highlights of my travels for both my and your sake. Who knows, maybe it will launch my career as a travel blogger and then I can globe trot at will!

I am a day and a half out from departure. As you could guess, I'm not completely packed yet, my room is a disaster area and my mother is starting to get a little frantic and worried that I won't have everything done in time. Fortunately, I have an excellent track record in these sorts of situations. You'll have to tune in later to see if I accomplish it all in time...


  1. We are so glad that you will be making it possible to follow your studies & experiences in Sevilla, Spain! Wishing you safe travels & a great experience, Love, Grandpa & Grandma Reimer

  2. Hi Haley,

    Beside following your adventures in Spain, I will be mining your blog for creative ideas on setting up my own blog for an anticipated cross-country bike trip this summer. Hope you're not missing the winter weather too much over there in sunny Sevilla. U. Larry

  3. Hi Haley,

    Wow, how time flies! From one of Brittany's BF's in Malaysia (a different decade, a different world !) to a lovely and poised young lady traveling and studying abroad ! We look forward to reading your blog and keeping up with your adventures ! May this be an experience of a lifetime. Stay safe and though I know this is really about "academics" (lol) try to squeeze in a little fun !
    PS - I can't believe your mom didn't cry at the airport !

    Abrazos ! Gail

  4. Thinking of you today, after some expressions that Abby made, so reminded me of you! Then I remembered you had a blog. Looks like quite an experience so far. I'm going to subscribe on my google reader and then I'll stay more up to date! Hope all is well! We miss you!
