My Travel Story

by: Gina Bounds Start Date: Oct 20, 2014 - End Date: Jan 27, 2015
My senior year of college is in the works and after the New Year, I will begin my final semester as an undergraduate student with Towson Universtiy. I have always had an interest to travel and see the world outside the one I know in Bowie and Baltimore Maryland. I love this state but there is so much out there I have not seen! 
   As an Art History major, the majority of the stuff I study is in other regions of the planet. I love all the things Iv been learning these last few years, but have decided that the best way to finish off this degree is to go overseas and see some of those pieces of history for myself! Studying abroad is going to be a life changing experience for me and I could not be more excited!
   The modern art era thrived in Spain giving us some of the world's most famous artists including Picasso, and Dali. Barcelona in particular has become one of the cities that encourage and welcome the new ideas of contemporary art. So with this one trip to Spain, I will learn of the art and architecture of the past and get to witnessed history in the making all at the same time!!!
    However, im sure we are all familiar with how expensive college is. In-state is manageble, out-of-state, and overseas is even worse. But it is all worth it in the end when your education was taken to the next level. I have applied for numerous scholarships and have been working my butt off all summer to save up for this experience of a lifetime.
    The tuition for my semster abroad includes everything from flights, to host families. It also includes exursions to various other places such as the Pyranese Mountain range along the border of Spain and France to really indulge the international students in the culture of Spain. Not only will your financial support help in getting me to experience this semster aboard, but I will have plenty of exciting stories to share when I get back! Any and all donations are graciously appreciated.Tthe donations will go towards my program expenses and my school books and supplies. I value the love and support from my friends and family and thank you all so very much!!!! xo
