Erasmus 10: My first semester

    Exams are over, and I have officially said all my goodbyes so I thought it would be fitting to do a reflective piece on my first semester in Madrid.   A lot has happened in 2017, and one of the most important things for me was starting my year abroad in Spain. Like […]
