Moving to Spain

At the beginning of January it was finally time for me to move to Spain, after waiting to do so for almost my entire third semester. I have to say, though, that not everything about the change of countries was easy. First of all, finding a flat in Barcelona was interesting. The flats, and especially rooms in flat sharing, are usually not what they look like on the pictures I got send before visiting the flats. This meant that I had to look at several places before I found somewhere I liked and wanted to live for the next month.

Another problem I had was getting used to the different systems of universities. At my Spanish University we have to hand in homework in nearly every subject once a week, write papers and prepare presentations. On one hand it is a nice experience because the exams are only a fraction of our final grades which means that I will not have to study as hard at the end to pass the courses. Though, on the other hand, there are basically deadlines every day and it is a lot more intense to keep up with all the dates.

Although there has been a lot of personal adjustment from my part, after having been in Barcelona for a few weeks now, I am enjoying my time here. The weather is great; the sun is shining a lot. Also, I do have enough free time to go and do sports every other day. As for my cultural activities, Spain is a good country to go out dancing with friends, especially Salsa, and to have a glass of “Cava”.
