carl_fonticella I've been back in Athens for over a week now, and I'm super excited to be back hOUme for my junior year! RA training has been incredible so far, but my favorite thing about it has been being back in Athens! Bring on the start of the year! #vsco #vscocam #athens #athensohio #convocationcenter #sunset #16x9 #ohiouniversity #ouohyeah #clouds 3w

carl_fonticella If there's one thing I've learned on my world travels, it's to appreciate where you've been because you never know when you'll be back. I've been to over half of the fifty states and seven countries so far and intend to visit many more throughout my life. Leave your footprint all over the world, and never stop exploring friends. This photo is taken on the Pacific Coast of Washington in Olympic National Park two summers ago. #vsco #vscocam #travel #olympicnationalpark #pacificocean #beach #footprint #liveyouradventure #washington #16x9 #explore 1mon

carl_fonticella Absolutely nothing better than a night at the ballpark! Jacobs Field and the Cleveland skyline make for a perfect baseball experience. Love this park. #vsco #vscocam #jacobsfield #cleveland #clevelandindians #rolltribe #theland #clouds #sunset #baseball 1mon

carl_fonticella Super cliché picture, but if you didn't know already I'm back in Fairview after two months away in Europe. My time living in Spain was incredible and I already want to go back! Good news is that I go back hOUme in only nine days time! #vsco #vscocam #spain #summerabroad #aifsabroad #sunset #plane #clouds #16x9 #collegetourist #CarlGoesToEurope 1mon

carl_fonticella On my last full day in Barcelona, I toured the Camp Nou, home to FC Barcelona and the largest stadium in both Spain and Europe. As a #ManchesterUnited fan, the only reason I enjoyed the tour was seeing where Ole Gunnar Solskjær scored the winning goal in the 1999 Champions League Final. The view from the press box though is absolutely dizzying! #vsco #vscocam #barcelona #spain #campnou #summerabroad #catalunya #panorama #collegetourist #CarlGoesToEurope 1mon

carl_fonticella I've spent most of this summer in Granada but now it's time to spend a few days in Barcelona before heading back home to the U.S. after two months away in Europe. While I've loved seeing the Gaudi architecture like the Sagrada Familia and the Park Güell it's definitely not on my list of top five cities I've been to; I'm just not getting a good vibe from here like London or São Paulo or some of the other big cities I've been to. Fun city, but not for me. #vsco #vscocam #panorama #barcelona #parkguell #gaudi #catalunya #spain #architecture #collegetourist #CarlGoesToEurope 2mon

carl_fonticella For eight days every year, Pamplona celebrates the patron saint of their city, San Fermín, with a festival that attracts over 1 million people from all over the world. Each morning of the festival thousands of people run the 826 meter course throughout the old part of Pamplona with the final stretch of road coming right after "La Curva", the most treacherous part due to the sharp right turn. The run lasts for a little over 2 minutes and for many of the runners is the opportunity of a lifetime, with many coming back every year. #vsco #vscocam #pamplona #spain #aifsabroad #summer #studyabroad #calleestafeta #runningofthebulls #sanfermin #festival #photojournalism #collegetourist #CarlGoesToEurope 2mon

carl_fonticella Since I don't know when I'll next be able to get wifi, here's a photo of Calle Estafeta here in Pamplona, Spain after the Running of the Bulls this morning. While most of my friends are off in Portugal, I decided to come up to Pamplona with a friend from high school to take in the sights and sounds of San Fermín, the festival best known for the running. Pamplona has been incredible so far, and tomorrow my friend and I have a balcony rented on this very street to watch the runners go by in the morning. #vsco #vscocam #studyabroad #aifsabroad #pamplona #sanfermin #spain #summer #calleestafeta #festival #runningofthebulls #collegetourist #CarlGoesToEurope 2mon

carl_fonticella We went horse back riding on the outskirts of the Sierra Nevada Mountains today but first we had to make friends with horses on a ranch in the small town of Dílar. Even though my horse always wanted to stop to eat the shrubs and trees, it still was a really fun time and the views of Granada and the mountains surrounding it during the golden hour was spectacular! I never want to leave this beautiful place. #vsco #vscocam #horse #ranch #granada #andalucia #spain #aifsabroad #studyabroad #collegetourist #sierranevada #CarlGoesToEurope 2mon

carl_fonticella “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.” – Mark Twain. Nothing like walking across a rickety wooden bridge just to get to the other side of a small ravine to continue on the trail. This is from our little nature adventure the other day, and we're going back again tomorrow. Blessed to have the Sierra Nevada mountains and amazing trails and locations just a 20 minute bus ride away. Go out and explore. #vsco #vscocam #granada #andalucia #spain #sierranevada #trail #hiking #bridge #explore #studyabroad #aifsabroad #summer #collegetourist #CarlGoesToEurope 2mon

carl_fonticella "Hike not so the world can see you, but so you can see the world." Nothing like a four hour hike (especially after getting lost) to help clear your mind and take a break from studying for finals. I've no clue where we are here, but I think it's somewhere near the town of Monachil, and the town in the background is Granada. Gorgeous day for a hike! #vsco #vscocam #16x9 #vintage #studyabroad #aifsabroad #hiking #granada #andalucia #spain #sky #summer #CarlGoesToEurope 2mon

carl_fonticella While in Chefchaouen, we came across a natural spring where women washed the family's clothing and these kids played in a pool. Due to the social hierarchy between men and women in Morocco, we learned that this is a social gathering point for women where they get to hang out and talk with friends. The kids, however, where having the times of their lives jumping into the pool and loved showing off their diving skills, which they've mastered given that the pool isn't very deep! It was a place that I know I wouldn't have left when I was a kid, and it was so cool to see and document daily life in a country I never thought I'd visit. Perks of going abroad! #vsco #vscocam #16x9 #chefchaouen #morocco #africa #studyabroad #aifsabroad #collegetourist #pool #summer #photojournalism #CarlGoesToEurope #WellTechnicallyAfrica 2mon

carl_fonticella Traveling abroad is one of the best decisions I've ever made. Coming from a small town in northwest PA with a population of less than 10,000, never in my wildest dreams did I see myself going abroad in my first two summers as a college student; Brazil last year, and Granada this summer. You don't get to see views like this very often, but luckily Granada is blessed with natural beauty and offers many different viewpoints of the beautiful Andalusian landscape. Going abroad also builds friendships you never knew to be possible and creates connections forever. Also, if you don't see me in the U.S. in the future it's because I refused to get on the plane to come back to America. I've got one month left in this beautiful country and I intend to make the most of it! #vsco #vscocam #16x9 #granada #andalucia #spain #studyabroad #aifsabroad #barrancodelabogado #mountain #sky #collegetourist #CarlGoesToEurope 2mon

carl_fonticella A shopkeeper stands in the doorway of his store in Chefchaouen, Morocco. This mountainous town is known for it's blue colored walls and streets and is absolutely picturesque. Since it's Ramadan, the streets were tranquil other than for vendors and shops like this one. Morocco isn't named as a destination place in everyday conversation but after visiting I definitely think it should be. #vsco #vscocam #16x9 #chefchaouen #morocco #blue #studyabroad #africa #aifsabroad #collegetourist #CarlGoesToEurope 2mon

carl_fonticella Local children fish off the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in Asilah, Morocco. The poles were far longer than any fishing pole I've seen in the U.S., and when they would catch a fish they would struggle to reach it to get it off the hook! Over these past three days I've been in Morocco and have loved every second of it. Beautiful country with amazing food, culture and people. #vsco #vscocam #16x9 #morocco #asilah #africa #studyabroad #aifsabroad #atlanticocean #fisherman #collegetourist #CarlGoesToEurope 3mon

carl_fonticella One of the coolest moments from this past weekend was seeing the Metrosol Parasol, this crazy looking wooden sculpture in the old quarter of Sevilla. After our group tour ended, @eric_fleet4 @kjenkins350 and I went on our own little tour of the city and I had such a great time. I know nothing about architecture but this was pretty darn cool. Many thanks to Eric for fangirling over this architectural masterpiece to convince me to go, otherwise I probably wouldn't have seen this! #vsco #vscocam #16x9 #sevilla #andalucia #spain #metrosolparadol #studyabroad #aifsabroad #collegetourist #CarlGoesToEurope 3mon

carl_fonticella While in Córdoba, we saw the Mosque-Cathedral that dates back to the late 700's and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It's a joint mosque and cathedral because it has been used as both throughout history and still has both that you can tour. This is the ceiling and part of the cathedral. I'm not religious in any way shape or form, but I can't help but be blown away at the fact that people built this without the help of modern technology and by how ornate and detailed everything is. #vsco #vscocam #16x9 #spain #studyabroad #aifsabroad #andalucia #cordoba #mosque #cathedral #cross #collegetourist #CarlGoesToEurope 3mon

carl_fonticella As mentioned in my previous post, this past weekend we went to both Sevilla and Córdoba. After touring the Alcazar in Sevilla, two friends and I toured the city and stumbled across some really cool graffiti, a skate park, saw a crew race going on, some guy free scaling the underside of an arch and these fishermen sitting on the banks of the Río Guadalquivir. Needless to say this weekend was a lot of fun! #vsco #vscocam #spain #sevilla #studyabroad #aifsabroad #collegetourist #andalucia #river #CarlGoesToEurope 3mon
