    Brandon's Bio:
    My major is on the left, but it’s taken me six major changes, two minor changes and three graduate-track changes to get there. I’m from a small farming town west of the Twin Cities and came to Duluth for the city and stayed for the school. I work at the Burns Wellness Center at the front desk and have pretty much the best job in the world. I like to take any opportunity thrown at me, and since coming here I’ve been thrown plenty. Life’s an adventure, and so is CSS!

Málaga! Málaga! Málaga!

Coming here was easily one of the best choices I’ve ever made. At a mild 65° Málaga was all mine to discover. After a 14-hour sleep/Recovery from Berlin I set out to my first location: Castillo de Gibralfaro, a castle at the tallest point in the city. Oh. My. God. I could believe what my eyes were showing me AND IT ONLY COST .60€!! I was in shock. After a quick cuppa in the terrace café, I made my way to Alcazaba, the site of a theatre the Romans constructed 2200 years ago. It was stunning. Again, only .60€. I then perused the streets until I came across a place where I got a snack of tapas and Spanish wine. After that, I walked along the sea and was sniped by a promoter and snagged a cheap ride through the harbor. After that I walked through some more of the town, bartered with vendors to get some cheap knockoff accessories and headed home. Once home I did something I’ve wanted to do since… forever. I swam in the Mediterranean sea. It took little motivation for me to quickly swap out my tourist attire and slip on my  swim trunks. (Not to mention the beach is only a few meters from my hostel. [as in I can hear it now. (Like, OMG.)]) The water was chilly, but the air was great, so I stuck around and drank in the sunset as it tucked itself away behind the mountains, casting a crown over the city with it’s rays. I generally hate the term, but after jumping into the Mediterranean in January, I think the term #yolo is actually appropriate.

After a dinner of Spanish meats and veggies provided and freshly grilled for me by the hostel host, I relaxed with some Germans staying in my room over a glass of wine. This. Is. Paradise.
¡Salud!
