Through the program of the cultural exchange with Spain, Milica made her dream come true and she spent almost two months in this wonderful country. Read more to find out what places she had visited.
The popular TV show “Los Serrano” is the reason why I love Spain and it’s because of this „famous family“ that I decided to start learning Spanish. I have visited Spain twice before the cultural exchange, but only Catalonia and Barcelona and my wish was to see more cities and to, of course, get the 2 months long experience of living in Spain. I also wanted to improve the language I rarely use in Serbia, because I have finnished the Spanish course a few years ago. So, the cultural exchange to Spain sounded like a great idea for all my little aspirations.
My summer in Spain lasted about 2 months and the city I was living in was Bilbao. I didn’t know much about the city, except the Football Club Atletic Bilbao, but thanks to the wonderful family that hosted me, I was able to see other places near Bilbao. I was babysitting three boys and my first thought when I heard that was: „It’s going to be a grueling summer.“
And so it was, but grueling in some positive way. A lot of travelling, wonderful people, a lot of delicious food, in one sentence: A lifetime experience and a summer I will never forget!
The boys were, like any other children, restless and demanding, but on the other hand they were adorable and careful and I really love them just as I love my family and so they love me. We spent our days at the swimming pool or at home playing board games and sometimes even video games. The parents are also wonderful and they had great suggestions for all my questions about travelling, as well as for any problem or doubt. Together with them I made plans for travelling to Madrid and Barcelona and for other cities in Basque country.
My advice to all young people who are going to Spain is to be what they trully are in front of their hosting family and to be kind, open and decent with everyone because Spaniards are very similar to us and they are very hospitable.
