The opportunity came up and everything happened so fast that even uncertain I accepted the challenge, leaving home, dropping everything and going to another country. Now, I’m here for more than three months and every day I’m more convincent that I made the right choice. Start a life elsewhere, learn other languages, meet new people and mingle with them of different cultures, all of this is not easy at first, but certainly is being renewing and enlightening to me, both to broaden knowledge regarding studies and as life learning.
Do an exchange is a unique experience, each one enjoy it in a different way. I’m having the opportunity to experience and live directly the Catalan culture, which makes me realize the importance of the country’s traditions, that you only can know performing an exchange. There are so many changes, people, environments, cultures, experiences, celebrations, that time flies. But the learning to be far away from home, stay just by yourself and fortunately with these wonderful flatmates, comforts me. I know that everything that is happening with me now, is gonna be a great learning to life. It is almost inexplicable.
