    Idiot's Guide to Spanish Coffee

    Curious case of 'a coffee' in Spain Being an absolute caffriend myself (see what I did there) there was nothing I was more excited about than jumping straight into the long-lunch-siesta-taking-coffee-sipping Spanish culture. I couldn't wait to wrap my hands around mugs...

    Barcelona: the city of all cities

    Barcelona is like a second home to me. I've got family and friends there and I know it like the back of my hand. A lot of catalans have even said that I know it better than they do. In every single way, Barcelona is a city you can get lost in. Walking around, finding...

    Supermarkets, which one to choose?

    Like I've said, the price difference between supermarkets here is massive, so big in fact I've decided to dedicate an entire post to it. The first week I was with my parents, and taking advantage of the fact we had a car we had a look round at a few different...

    My second Erasmus, the Erasmus work placement

    After doing my Erasmus year (2011/2012), for no other reason than love (pretty common for people that go, so for those going in the future, you already know what could happen, and remember it happens much more often than you might think) I decided to spend just the...

    Erasmus Experience in Zagreb, Fausto in Croatia

    Why did you choose to go to Zagreb, Croatia? The truth is I chose it as there weren't any other places left. Even so, I think it was a good choice. First of all because I was one of the first Spanish Erasmus students that went to Croatia. That year there were 3 Erasmus...

    Why did you choose to go to Warsaw, Poland? Warsaw was the best option, although there were lots. I initially chose to go to the UK, but after a friend spoke to me about Poland, I chose Warsaw as my first choice as I wanted to live in a capital city and Poland has a lot...

    The importance of negotiation

    SBB, ZVV: Public Transport in Switzerland and Zurich

    Before you buy clothes, or even food, the one thing you need to buy is a travel pass. Zurich is a small little city, but vast at the same time, and if you don't live in one of the main areas then you'll have to walk 20 minutes to find a cash machine or supermarket. So,...
