A Day in the Life of SAI Barcelona
Talia, Barcelona, Spring 2016

We handed over our Instagram to a few students this month and asked them to take us through their day in their host city. This is Talia’s day in Barcelona (April 3, 2016).

Talia L - Barcelona - Spring 16

Hey everyone! I’m Talia and I’m studying at ELISAVA this semester in Barcelona with SAI. I’m originally from outside DC and I study graphic design at VCU. Here’s a pic from my amazing spring break in Rome!

Quick snack before a Sunday outside! Bocadillos are everywhere in Barcelona and cortados are a new favorite of mine.

Old Barcelona buildings and flowered balconies right above one of my favorite places.

Everyone at #paloaltomarket was looking their best for the fashion weekend, even these cuties.

Beautiful food, people and setting at @paloaltomarket this afternoon.

Old posters and layers of graffiti like this are everywhere in Barcelona. I always pass this on my way home from the metro and never get tired of it.

I caught up on a little HW this afternoon. Here’s one of the projects I’ve done while I’ve been here studying at @elisavabcn! It’s an instructional manual for coping with mornings.

This picture is from the top of La Pedrera, a modernist building designed by Gaudi. In my SAI group we always joke that everything important in Barcelona was designed by Gaudi because his work is everywhere in the city. However, I know what may seem redundant now is really something that I won’t be able to have at my fingertips forever. My semester abroad feels like it’s coming to a speedy end, I only hope to appreciate and hold onto the memories and sights that seem commonplace now but are a truly meaningful part of my experience here. Thank you SAI for your guidance this semester!
