It’s funny how the life plays with you, because when my other classmates were chosen to go to Bulgaria I thought to myself: “I really would like to join this project, but … never mind, forget it...”. Just few weeks later the principal asked me if I would like to go to Spain.
I was very excited all the time that made me forgetful sometimes, and I was afraid that I could forget something important.
My experience in Spain was full of emotions with some breathtaking moments, fun and also a lot of tears on the last day when we said goodbye to each other. I got to know a lot of different people.
We did many creative activities at school, for example, photo competition, which was fun, and prepared also diary of the week. One day a magician came to the school to show his tricks and teach us or we could at least try some tricks ourselves.
I have enjoyed things with my eyes, my hands and also by taste. I am amazed how milk products in Spain are different from ours. Though I missed some products from home like sauer-cream, but I loved Spanish fresh-made bread. I’ve heard a myth that more you go to the southern countries, the more spicy food there is, but in Spain the food wasn’t much spicy.
I lived in a family of a nice girl, Júlia. She has the very best family! They showed me many different places, for example, Montserrat Mountains and Monastery, that was amazing and very impressive. There was a swimming pool in Júlia’s house, where I jumped in every evening. Júlia's family will always take a special place in my heart.
When you may feel you know quite a lot of English and can manage well, that appeared harder than I thought before I got the chance to try it in a real situation. Our communication seemed to be very interesting. At first I stumbled and I couldn’t talk, but after we talked about everything. I’ve learned also a couple of words in the Catalan language, and the phrase ‘t'estimo’ is the most memorable, that means – ‘I love you’.
This experience in Spain was very useful and unforgettable.
