Hi friends! It’s Sam here. I’ve compiled a list of amazing things I’ve learned and experienced while here in London on study abroad. Cheers!
I’m in Spain!! Never thought I would be on the other side of the North Atlantic Ocean, but I am! Arriving to my host family’s home I was really nervous even though I had talked to my host sister through WhatsApp. My family consists of my host mom, Mercedes, and host sister, Julia. I was worried about whether they’d like me and about us getting along because I would be living at their house for the rest of the summer in Santander.
Since returning from London, I have noticed a tremendous amount of habits I have picked up from my study abroad trip that I am exemplifying back home currently.
I never realized how much I love breakfast food until I came to Spain and began only eating a small pastry and drinking a cup of tea for breakfast every morning. Back home, I eat SO MUCH more and it has certainly taken getting accustomed to.

Being in Japan for a year also meant being away from my family’s pets for a year. We’ve had animals around since I was 10 years old or so. It can be hard not having a furry friend around to cuddle.
I’d like to share my experience with the American Clinic Tokyo with you guys, just in case it could help anyone studying abroad in Tokyo. I know this isn’t the funnest thing to talk about, but you need to take care of yourself, at home and abroad.
As a fan of city and small-town life, I was quick to adapt to the new beat of London city life. Despite the differences of a new culture and environment, there are plenty of touches of American life or Kalamazoo for those that are home sick or Broncos that need a bit of campus life with them when they travel.
