Alicante, Spain: it’s a must! 

In May, I planned a spontaneous trip with three close friends to Spain! We all needed a relaxing getaway on the beach, with cheap and tasty tapas, and of course some gelato! 

   
 
We were studying in Sweden at the time and ironically stayed in an Airbnb run by a Scandinavian woman! We never took a photo together, but I looked like a young version of her (big glasses, curly hair and all). 

    
   
The Airbnb was not even five minutes walking to one of the beaches in Alicante.  The sun was shining, the water was warm, and the company was grand. 

   
    
   
Leaving Sweden and study abroad was an emotional challenge yesterday, but making memories such as these ones are worth all the painful “see you laters” and goodbyes.
