I am so excited to be leading another study abroad trip, this time to Barcelona! The students on this program will be law, business and engineering students and we will be gone January 1-14. My co-leader is Joe Barker, who teaches Engineering and I teach in the Paralegal program. We cannot wait for the adventure to begin tomorrow! This has been in the works for over a year now and it is hard to believe the time is here.
We are working with a study abroad provider in Barcelona, called Barcelona SAE (https://www.barcelonasae.com/). They have set up a really great itinerary for us and I think it is going to be a wonderful experience for everyone. Tomorrow will be a long day, however. We leave NWTC mid-morning and take a bus to Chicago. We fly from O'Hare to Paris, where we have about a four-hour layover before our flight to Barcelona. We will arrive in Barcelona at 2:20pm on January 2. I hope everything will be on time! It looks like the weather should be ideal for travel.
We will be spending 12 nights in Barcelona and are staying in apartments in the Eixample neighborhood of Barcelona. They look like they will be a really nice and comfortable home away from home for almost two weeks.
