About 2 years ago I applied for Erasmus programme. It was my dream since high school and when I came to university, I was sure that I will go on Erasmus.

My English was not perfect, I had lots of fears but nevertheless I was more than excited. I was happy.

I’m Guillermo and I am a Spanish Industrial Engineering Student. An Erasmus grant was conceded to me two years ago and thanks to that my view of the world had completely changed. I couldn’t let go of all the good things that being Erasmus meant so I’m volunteering in ESN Universidad Rey Juan Carlos. 

How would you feel if at the age of 19 you had the first experience of living alone in a big city in a new country without even knowing their language? Would you believe me If I told you that this experience will turn into the best year you've ever had in your life so far?
