Study abroad blogs are for social-media stalking family members and homeschooled kids. This one wants to be something different. Grateful that we have the ability and the means to sometimes study in Madrid, we want to document the scents and mysterious vending machine candy of the old world. Come find your purpose on a trip to the land that birthed rolling papers, guitars, and mayonnaise. Your favorite Method correspondents are here to give you a taste of Europe. Join these two fun loving American girls as we find ourselves in the bright lights of the Gran Via. Will it be fun? Yes Will there be good photos? Maybe, idk. Our short experience here has thus far yielded a few dank nugs of information about this great country. To better prepare the ponytailed backpacker in all of us, enjoy this list of dos and don’ts (inside and out of the club).
Thanks to everyone who contributed. You know who you are.
P.S. Euro music is surprisingly big in Europe. A saxophone solo that repeats three times and a hottie-filled video makes this a classic recipe for a number one hit. With over 68 million views on Youtube and a top 3 hit in 16 countries across the continent, it’s a wonder this never charted stateside. The future is here.
