Going to Spain or even going to abroad did not cross my mind not until a few months ago. These things were always in my dreams. I was very happy when I heard that I was going to Spain because I was going to visit different places and have lots of friends. It was a very different experience for me. It was very nice. It was also great to get on a plane.
On the first day we met our families and friends. Elia and her family are very sweet people. I loved them very much. We spent more time on Monday with our friends. We did an activity about communication.
On Tuesday, we visited Barcelona. We went to La Sagrada Familia and Barcelona Stadium. We wandered the streets. We took a lot of photos.
On Wednesday we went to a school where people with handicap had a job. In the school a presentation was made to us. Then we were divided into two groups. We went to a flower garden where only handicap people work. We made a flower bouquet with my friend in the flower garden. Then we meet with the other group and went to Parc de l'Agulla. We spent some time at the park and we did a group discussion about handicap peoples. Then we returned to our homes.
We went to our school on Thursday and made a notebook there, we played games.
We went to school again on Friday. We conducted sport activities and a survey about communication with the Kahoot program. We pasted a sentence about communication in each country's native language on the stairs. A lot of people were crying because we were going to leave and I also cried. We spent the whole day together with our friends.
On Saturday we said goodbye to our family and friends and then took the road to Barcelona to go back to Turkey. Thanks to Erasmus, I understood that friendship is more important than anything. I cried when I missed my family there but when I was with my friends I felt safe and in peace. None of us have the same language or religion, but this was not an obstacle for us. I thought I could never express myself, but it wasn't hard. My friends understood me or tried to understand. I hadn't made friends from Erasmus before. I met a lot of nice people, from teachers to parents. Well, I've been to Spain and I've made many good friends. I love my friends so I hope they love me. I'm gonna miss my friends…
