Food is really expensive, we have little store like Kmarket to do our shopping food, in France we have big supermarket so it s less expensive. I take also a sonera phone card to call my friends in Finland and I have also my french line, so it was normal that it has been more expensive. For travels, I think thanks to the student exchange association, I could travel a lot, discover plenty of things in really cheap way !!!

Because I had to pay all my expenses, in my home country, my parents paid everything. Regarding the travels and nightlife, there were more opportunities to travel because the school organized many trips, and the nightclubs are a must to meet new people and enjoy all the Erasmus and Finnish students.

Well if you go out at night too much you can spend a lot of money, especially at the weekends. At Fridays and Saturdays you pay 7€ to get in a discotheque, plus 2€ for the jacket, and a beer is 5€.

I don't travel when I am at home whereas I travelled a lot when I was in Finland. It was the unique opportunity to visit Russia and other East European Countries. As far as the nightlife is concerned, I was with other exchange students so we went out almost every night. It's a special atmosphere.
