I'm glad that my coworker took me to this cafe, especially since it's so close to the workplace! A game changer with the weather getting warmer😍 (Spain, Spring 2018 semester, FASS)

Bethune, France

The Grand-Place in Béthune, France. Walking around here was a bit like stepping back in time, because of the Flemish style buildings. The town was rebuilt after it was destroyed in WWI. In Fall 2016-Spring 2017, I worked here as a language assistant before returning to SFU to finish my French degree. #captureyourcommute #sfucoop

This building reminded me a lot of SFU.. the grey, the structure, and the number of people trying to find out where to go. @beedieabroad @sfu_coop #beedieabroad #captureyourcommute

Meet Gustav. He’s South African, I met him during my orientation, and his favourite word is yea yea. He’s really cool, and not just because he has an iPhone X to take cool photos of me like the one you’re about to see soon but because he joins in on my “adventures.” Be like Gustav, I like Gustav.

It has been a wild journey since the day I came over to the States for my first co-op. Really appreciate the chance that was given to me. It was a great adventure. I still remember the first day when I arrived, I was trying so hard to adapt to the new surrounding. It was tough and challenging. But I would like to thank my friends that have helped me along they way, and those who have brought me around @wengkeat575 @thejoshchin @halimpolar

Bethune, France

A sign I often passed on my way to work in Bethune, France. It was a pleasant reminder of home which was definitely welcome whenever I was feeling homesick. In Fall 2016-Spring 2017, I worked here as a language assistant before returning to SFU to finish my French degree. 

@raaachell5jooo

Barcelona, Spain

As much as I like the Meditereanean/Catalan cuisine, I crave Korean rice and spices. There was a restaurant that served good Asian food, thank goodness. The taste helped me make it through my 9 month internship because it reminded me of home. While walking to work, I would often consider going there for dinner 🍚 (Spain, Spring 2018 semester, FASS)

Every evening in Summer 2017 I would walk along the canal on my way home from work. The evening breeze was a relief from the sweltering Singapore heat. Some people even managed to exercise in the 30 degree weather! #fhs #captureyourcommute @sfu_coop

This was taken near a 7-11 before we had a “school dinner” and some 36 year old whose been here for like 400 years kept on talking and nobody was interested. When I said bye to him with a fist bump he grabbed it like an apple. I used hand sanitizer after that. @sfu_coop@beedieabroad #captureyourcommute #beedieabroad

Bethune, France

The beautiful Grand-Place in Bethune, France at night. To the left is a tall belfry tower that chimes every fifteen minutes or so. During the war, the belfry, or beffroi, was partially destroyed, but it’s since been reconstructed. In Fall 2016-Spring 2017, I worked here as a language assistant before returning to SFU to finish my French degree. #captureyourcommute #sfucoop @sfu_coop #photocontest#beffroi

I was on my way to have a cup of coffee with some teachers when we saw this mural of Barcelona. I could not not take a picture ♥️ A perfect photo to sum up my wonderful experience in this city (Spain, Spring 2018 semester, FASS)

I met two wonderful girls, that I now call my friends, during my internship. I was introduced to one of them through the school I worked at and the other by coincidence on the train. We've made some amazing memories together whether it was in the cafe, eating lunch/dinner, taking the kids to the park, going for a hike, or doing touristic things 💕🤗 (Spain, Spring 2018 semester, FASS)

Who says office buildings have to be drab? On my way to my workplace in Singapore I passed some beautiful buildings like this. The sunshine helps!

Here's to my partner in crime and the one I couldn't have ever survived without 🥂 What would I have done without another English language assistant in the school? (I think that sums up our experience, memories, and relationship 😏) I wish you all the best until we see each other again in Vancouver, London, or Barcelona!
