El Camino de Santiago (The Way of Saint James)

Comillas happens to be one of the stops on the northern route of the famous Way of Saint James or commonly known as El Camino de Santiago.  Comillas Academy students watched the film called “The Way” starring Martin Sheen as an introduction to the many reasons why hundreds of people annually make this pilgrimage.  

Arrival in Comillas

At exactly 1:25 pm (Spain time!), 48 students, two teachers and the activities coordinator arrived at the ABBA Comillas Hotel. They are pretty tired, but we are checking them in and they will go up to their rooms to shower and rest. They will have lunch after that and then unpack and nap. There is a planned walk around town and then back to the hotel for the welcome meeting and signing of the Language Pledge.

Preparing for My Trip to Comillas, Spain

I spent today beginning to prepare for my trip to Comillas, Spain. It is hard to believe that I’m leaving once again in less than a month, as it feels like just yesterday that I came home from MMLA Pomona.

I’m doubly excited for the trip to Spain as it will not only be the continuation of my MMLA learning experience but the first time I ever leave the country. As with many exciting things, there were some not-quite-as-exciting things that I had to do in order to prepare.
