Ariana Palmer is a student at Rider University and an ISA Photo Blogger. She is currently studying abroad with ISA in Malaga, Spain.
When choosing where to study abroad, many students tend to focus on the one city that they have always longed to travel to. While this is ideal, you may want to consider how close your chosen city is to its surrounding cities, or even another city you may want to travel to. Why, you ask? Whether you are studying for a month, semester, or even a year, you will have time to travel as you please. You may wake up one day and say “Hey! I want to go to Paris for the weekend” and it may only be a 40€, 3 hour train ride away.
Below are some of my weekend adventures that were made possible because Málaga is so close to many great historic and modern cities.
La Sagrada Familia
Monastery of San Juan de Los Reyes
Sobrino de Martin
Palacio Real de Madrid (Royal Palace of Madrid)
With that being said, I am sure you will pick a host city close to cultural and historical enriching cities!
