Wednesday, since I didn't have an exam, I went to the beach for about an hour and a half. It was the first time I swam at the Playa del Postiguet, the beach right in Alicante. I have been to Playa del Postiguet numerous times, but Wednesday I finally swam there and it was amazing; the water was the perfect temperature and I was awestruck that while swimming one can see the Castillo de Santa Bárbara.

to the Fallas in Valencia, which happen the week after I leave
After taking my last exam and, feeling the weight of the world lift off of my shoulders, I came home an relaxed a little and then I decided to pack since I leave on Saturday! It seems so surreal that I am leaving; I feel like I've been here for only a couple months, not nearly five. I am excited though to be going back home, but I will miss my home away from home, Alicante, a lot.
And one last tip, just lose your inhibitions and go with the flow, and your study abroad experience will hopefully be as amazing as mine.
