Melissa's Journey to Switzerland and Morocco

Current Location

Amsterdam, Netherlands

From August to September, I will be living in Switzerland, studying Global Health & Development Policy. I will also travel to Morocco to learn more about their current public health initiatives. 


I will be sharing with you pictures and my favorite memories from my weeklong trip to Spain, where I got to visit Barcelona and Madrid!


I am sharing with you my final thoughts and pictures, on these last few days of my travels. Soon, I will get ready to go back home! 

Field Notes

I got the chance to interview my host brother, Luca! He was very excited to get to share his experiences as a Swiss student with you and also get to ask you questions. 


Switzerland is known for its Christmas markets in the months of November and December. During the Christmas markets, you can find a lot of different local shops selling delicious food and ornaments.
