ELC Donkey in Santa Barbara

In August, all of Santa Barbara celebrates the Old Spanish Days, which are also known as the Fiesta Days! ELC had its own large celebration and part of the décor were cute miniature donkeys that resembled piñatas. Students loved these and many took them home as souvenirs and reminders of their study abroad experience at ELC Santa Barbara. But, one of these lucky donkeys wasn’t just placed on a shelf in its owner’s home country. Pascal Froelich travelled to 12 different countries after studying at ELC for 8 weeks and his little donkey joined him for his trip around the world!

After traveling to several states in the US, Canada, Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, Malaysia, China, Mongolia and Russia, Pascal is back in his hometown of Elgg, Switzerland and is hoping to save up money for his next adventure! Here’s a picture summary of Pascal’s trip – enjoy!
