Travelling makes me the person I have always wanted to be!
I have a wide range of interests, from business, start-ups and management consulting (which are all related to my university course) to music, languages and science. However, visiting new places and exploring other cultures are the things that have formed part of my plans and dreams since I was a kid.
So many things happened in the last couple of months that I haven’t had the time to write about each and every experience. That is why I am using this opportunity to summarise some of them and share my feelings less than two weeks before I leave Valencia. Spending the whole academic year as an Read more
Hola a todos! I cannot believe that soon I will be leaving Valencia, the city that has given me so much. Apart from all the fun I have had and the amazing people I have met, I have also been able to make contacts with inspiring entrepreneurs and people working in the field that I Read more
Buenos días! It has been such a long time since my last blog post and I am glad I have the chance to write something about my university experience here. I have been talking a lot about the Spanish festivals and parties, but the truth is in the past few weeks I have also had Read more
In stead of talking only about environmental issues and how people in Spain treat them, in this blog post I have decided to demonstrate the relationship between this topic and the one about festivals and celebrations discussed previously. As I mentioned before, one of the biggest and most spectacular festivals in Spain is called Las Read more
I still find it hard to believe that I have witnessed one of the biggest and most impressive festivals in Spain. Las Fallas de Valencia take place in the period 15th-19th March each year and this is a celebration you don’t want to miss. The preparations start very early on and during the official days Read more
Spain is in no doubt the country of festivals, parties and celebrations and the people here definitely know how to have fun! That is why I find it hard to summarise my knowledge on this topic and the great experiences I have had in one single blog post. However, I will do my best to Read more
Although I have had to say goodbye to a lot of my friends after the January exam period, we had a week full of amazing experiences, celebrations and trips and now the second term is in full swing with some new friendships starting to form. My flatmates and I had become like a family to Read more
Sports activities are an important part of Spanish lifestyle. The climate makes it possible to practice anything from ice-skating, football to beach volley and surfing. We all know that food and celebrations are the essence of Mediterranean culture. However, when you come to Spain (or any other country in Southern Europe for that matter), you Read more
Alicante was my weekend get-away for last week. My flatmate, two other Italian friends and I caught the 9 am bus on Saturday morning and arrived at our destination in just over two hours. As it was raining, we entered one of the first bakeries we saw and we talked over a cup of coffee Read more
Last weekend I went on a trip that I hadn’t really planned to do, but it turned out to be the best thing that has happened to me on Erasmus. Although it was raining most of the time, we managed to see some of the most famous and beautiful places in Andalusia (and Spain in Read more
I know it has been a while since my last post, but so many things are happening here in Valencia every day!!! I have barely had time to sit and write a few lines to my friends (both in Bulgaria and Cardiff), let alone sit undisturbed for an hour or so to write an article. Read more
I think last weekend was one that I will remember for the rest of my life! I went on a trip to one of the biggest amusement parks in Europe and to the beautiful historic city of Tarragona. Basically, me and my friends spent two days full of adrenaline, true happiness and something more…We left Read more
Last week I visited the place I had been dreaming to go into since I first saw pictures of Valencia – one of the biggest and most astonishing aquariums in Europe! My uncle came on a trip around Spain and while he was staying with me, we decided to explore the beautiful city I am Read more
As I mentioned in my previous post, there are a lot of activities organised for Erasmus students here in Valencia. One of the many organisations that deal with this is the Erasmus Student Network (ESN). On Friday they offered a free tour of the city and I went there with an English friend I met Read more
No words can ever describe the excitement I felt in the last few days before heading off to Spain. Visiting this beautiful country has been my dream since I was a child and there was almost no room for worries in my brain. Besides, I had already had the experience of moving away from my Read more
