I simply cannot believe my time in Spain has finally come to an end! It has been such a great pleasure living and studying in such a lively city with lovely people. This whole experience has truly exceeded my expectations. I learnt about different cultures and how to relate with different people.
For anyone in doubt I fully recommend either studying or working abroad you will be truly amazed at how much you will learn on such a small period of time. I will try to summarize my experiences so far in a few points of lessons learnt.
