The last five months I have spent in Girona gave me many things. Every day was full of surprises and discoveries – a different culture, nature, climate and people. Sun, Spanish music and cuisine, the peaceful and romantic Girona and the Pyrenees nearby. For us Spanish rhythm of life is unusual. Spanish people are masters of life enjoyment. Here no one is in a hurry. People are open-minded, joyful and friendly. Learning at University of Girona was not easy. Good grades here do not come easy, you have to do everything with a full return. Basic knowledge of Spanish language is very useful because there are few people who speak English in the city. Nevertheless, they perfectly know how to communicate using gestures. I am grateful for the chance to spend an exciting semester in a country that has already become my second home. It felt like I have stayed there much longer than in reality. Half a year is a sufficient time to adapt and enjoy the local lifestyle and broaden your horizons. I recommend Spain because it is a great country for Erasmus+!
