Adelante: Seville - Semester, Summer and Intern in Seville

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
absolutely worthwhile! gained a lifetime of experience through my travels, and immersed myself in different cultures. I learned that no matter where you live or go in the world we are all the same and go through the exact same experiences. We're just seeing all things through different eyes and expressing ourselves in different languages.

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)

I did okay, I surely ate better in the first 3 months and enjoys more luxuries. The last 3 months I had to stretch funds, but i lived.

The Avid Adventurer
The wardrobe you packed was better suited for a semester of camping than club hopping. Outdoorsy, you might forgo a crazy night out for an early all-day adventure. You'd rather take in the rich culture of an old town than the metropolis of a modern city, but for you getting off the grid is ideal.
