A glimpse of Spain Abroad

"A huge thank you to you and Leanna and the rest of your team for a wonderful Spain Abroad semester!  Our son had a wonderful time and, as we hoped, the experience provided a much needed reset for him.  He seems more relaxed, confident, and adventurous than before he left.  Your program exemplifies everything a gap year experience should be and we are eternally grateful”

"I really enjoyed this program! Estepona is a phenomenal town with great people, so much to do, and you can walk anywhere you need to go. The day trips were amazing! Most of the towns we went to I had never seen anything like it. Also the food was awesome. I am absolutely going to go back to Spain!  10/10 recommend!"
