5 Ways To Take Advantage Of Your Erasmus Scholarship

This article was originally published in Spanish on my own personal blog back on August 10th, 2013, as a way to tell my Erasmus experience studying and working abroad in Poland, and share some tips and recommendations for those college students who are interested in going abroad.

It has been over four years since I first published this article and I still get emails from time to time from students who are considering doing an Erasmus, asking for advice and recommendations.

A Weekend Guide to Chefchaouen, Morocco

Why Chefchaouen?

This time we chose to head up into the Rif Mountains to visit the famous blue town of Chefchaouen, or “Chaouen” as it is known by locals. This picturesque place is located just a bus, ferry, and taxi ride away from our home in Cádiz, Spain. It may seem like a bit of a trek to get there, but it really is quite simple and definitely worth it. Continue Reading “A Weekend Guide to Chefchaouen, Morocco”

24 Hours in San Francisco

I happened to be in town attending a congress for work. The event finished on Thursday and my flight left on Saturday morning, which allowed me to have 24 hours to explore the city. I had some time to prepare for my hours of freedom so I did some research beforehand. Let me tell you something in advance – 24 hours in San Francisco is not enough. But that was just a motivator for me to see and eat as much as I could. Here are my findings: Continue Reading “24 Hours in San Francisco”

Three very different destinations that are a good representation of the diversity of this country. Here’s a summary of our visit and our main recommendations:
