Bilbao does not get the international credit that it deserves. The city is not too big, not too small. You meet new people every day, but if you are outgoing and make friendships you will also see old friends every day. Read Review

Dubliners was a great place to have a drink and they made a special effort to create events that allowed the Erasmus kids, the US students, and the locals. Getxo was a great city to escape to by metro. It had the best cafe's and fantastic window shopping.

I had the challenges that any foreigner will face, but everyone was so patient. In the begining I did not even want to answer my cell phone if my house mom was calling, because I knew that I would not understand anything she said, but by the end of one year; I would call her just to see how her day was going and spend some nights with her and her girlfriends while they gossiped the night away!
