The kid's schools normally take a compulsory trip each year - even starting as young as the 3rd grade. Cainan and Finley's schools go skiing for a week. (How cool is it that they get to ski the Swiss Alps?) But Arlington's high school decided to do a Study Trip these last few years instead. It seems to be more popular for the older kids. Last year they went to Yorkshire, England, and this year was Spain. I am grateful that she gets this opportunity to go.
She had a great time exploring. She did wish they had more time to go into some of the historical buildings, so I think we will be returning to these areas of Spain in the future to explore a little further

The beach in Girona - their first stop. They did a kayak trip on the Mediterranean
The Salvador Dali Museum. They did go inside and she said it was "very strange"

I had her take this one for me. She couldn't get any closer, but this was on the set of Game of Thrones.
