The great thing about being an intern in Barcelona is that I was able to work in a different country. CISabroad did an amazing job pairing me up for my internship. As a hospitality and tourism management major, we learn a lot about hotels and restaurants in the classroom but my internship was marketing for an award winning hostel chain. This gave me the chance to learn about the industry in a different way and it really opened my eyes to what is out there.
Pack an open mind with you! When traveling, you are faced with so much 'new' all at once that uncomfortable often becomes the new comfortable. No worries though - it keeps things exciting!
