The city of Madrid and being in Spain was my favorite part. Spain has so much to offer and every town is unique in it's own way and has so much life and energy. Madrid is a great place to study abroad as it is cheaper compared to most large cities but has everything a large city can offer. The people in Madrid and in Spain are very friendly and always seemed willing to help and be patient with my broken Spanish.

The experience. Having been to Spain before, it was fantastic to emerge myself in the culture for such an extended period of time. Getting to know and live with people from so any different countries and backgrounds was eye opening and made me want to stay for as long as I could.

I learned that this is an experience you can't quite some up to someone that asks, "how was you study abroad?" It was an experience that was so unique to me and the people I shared it with. I also learned to be flexible and open. I originally had an apartment and it was terrible. I was about to suck it up and just get through it, but then I met these Portuguese guys that showed us where they lived. They had an open flat below them and the next day my roommate from KU and I moved across Madrid. It was the best decision I made because we met our group of friends through this move. Being flexible and able to make decisions on the fly helped me more than I can convey.
