SPANISH CULTURE

As you probably will know, spain goes in a slow path motion. What I am trying to say with this is that there are not reasons why you have to be in a hurry. In spain it is better to enjoy the breakfast correctly than to arrive puntual to one place. Also all the culture goes around food.  They speak loud and they are really opened persons. Also the party is amazing. The theme in Spain is, enjoy the moment and enjoy it with the once you love. Here I explain a bit about every aspect of the spanish culture.

How much money do I need for my erasmus in Spain?

A beer in Spain costs aproximatelu 1.5€ in a bar. Going in erasmus to Spain is relatively cheap, however you will spend a lot of money in food (eah you will be always eating). Also the dorms and flats are expensive. I recommend to rent a flat with friends. Apart of this, it is affortable. You will spend more or less 1000€ counting travelling and everything.
