"To this day, my study abroad trip with SPI was the best trip of my life. I felt challenged and enjoyed all the adventures SPI had to offer. Over a year later and I have still kept in touch with my host family and the friends I made that summer...my trip abroad helped me grow as an individual and gave me a taste of what it is like to travel and experience the world...I would recommend this experience to anyone and everyone; it is a life changer." -Janessa, San Sebastian participant
