Audrey McCarthy Contest

Category 1: A Day in the Life
First Place: Audrey McCarthy, Fall 2017, Palma de Mallorca, Spain
"This is a picture of a mandarin that I was about to eat, with the terrace of my homestay apartment. I see this view almost every day, because I like to sit and read or do homework out there, and the view from my bedroom is the same. They eat a Mediterranean diet here in Mallorca, so there is tons of fresh fruits and vegetables, and my absolute favorite is mandarin oranges. The ones they have here are super fresh and delicious, so I usually eat a couple every day. I also love to take pictures of them because they're so beautiful, and there's always something around here to make a great background."

Field visits in Palma de Mallorca. The Cathedral

And of course, we have visited the Cathedral. Palma Cathedral is known as the Cathedral of Light because the Mediterranean light goes through its 87 stained glass windows and its 8 impressive rose windows, one of them the biggest of the Gothic world. It is also known as the Cathedral of Space, because it is said that with 43m height is the gothic cathedral which with less stone embraces more useful space.

And afterwards we went to Can Joan de S'Aigo, the oldest chocolateria in Mallorca, from the 1970s.

Language class Activities

Let me share with you today one of our language class outings.


We went to see an impressive fortification of the 14th century, Bellver Castle, so important for our historical memory. This Gothic Mallorcan castle is the oldest in Europe with round shape. Not only we enjoy the beautiful landscape and natural environment, but we learn about our history and lots of vocabulary, with organized activities which require speaking Spanish all the time. And after the castle, we spent the afternoon at the beach.

First days in Palma. CIEE Palma de Mallorca Fall 2017

We are loving the semester in Palma. During the first weeks we organize many activities to put students in contact with the culture and the logistics of the city. We have walked around the streets in Palma’s historical district to shop and obtain the bus card and cellphones. We have visited the campus before classes started, so we got to know the installations and classrooms. Bellow our first picture on campus.
