¡Hola! My name is Fiorina Adorati and I am currently completing my senior year in both Biochemistry and Spanish at Maryville College. Last semester, spring 2012, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Spain at the University of Santiago de Compostela. The city itself is named Santiago de Compostela, a Galician city, and has absolutely astonishing geographical beauty and medieval charm. During my time there, I had some of the most wonderful experiences of my life. I was also able to make amazing friends, learn about a different culture, and discover a lot about myself. Traveling abroad was by far the best decision I've made as a Maryville College student. As a result of my trip, I've made incredible friends and memories that will last a lifetime. In short, the follow phrase epitomizes what traveling abroad is all about, “travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.” Therefore, I believe exploring the world through travel is the only way to fill in all the blank pages the world has to offer. Take a chance and travel abroad--you won't regret it!
