My name is Dustin Abnos, and I am a junior at Kansas State University, double majoring in Mechanical Engineering and Spanish. I am 21 years old, and will be attending the University of Barcelona, looking to improve my Spanish speaking skills. Being a huge soccer (the real “football”) fan, I plan to attend one FC Barcelona game during the next 4 months in Spain. I am excited to learn more about the Spanish culture, whether it is the food, music, dances, or arts. Being a fan of food, I am especially eager famous Spanish dishes, such as the paella, and tapas. I was born and raised in the Kansas City metropolitan area, but traveling the world is something I love to do. I have already traveled to over 20 states and have traveled internationally, including Peru, China, and Mexico. With this trip to Barcelona, I plan on not only exploring the wondrous cities in Spain but also the “must-see” cities in other countries around Europe. I am looking forward to the priceless experiences and friendships that await me in this semester in Spain.
