Things I Miss While Studying Abroad

On Wednesday, I shared with you the things I love about Spain and the city I’m studying in, Sevilla. While there’s a lot to love about exploring and living in a new country, there are some things I miss about the United States. Here’s the list:

  • Soap and toilet paper in all public restrooms
  • Air conditioning – I don’t know how the Sevillanos can live this way all summer (temperatures were over 100 degrees this past summer)
  • Casual clothing (You’d never find a Spaniard outside of their home in a T-shirt, Norts and a baseball cap)
  • Cars
  • Of course my family and friends

Love these two so much

  • And my two sweet dogs
  • Completely understanding everything (What a luxury!)
  • Customer service
  • Waiters that talk to you
  • Long showers
  • Not being harasses as much to buy things I don’t want
  • Not being scammed or ripped-off
  • Straight hair (I was going to buy a straightener, but the cheapest one at El Corte Inglés was around 60 euros.)
  • My entire closet
  • MEXICAN FOOD
The best pizza on earth, from Shakespeare's in Columbia, MO

  • Also pizza, but I have seen some good looking pizza here
  • Friendlier people
