Personal savings

Personal spending habits
I spent less in telephone because it was useless than in my home country, I spent less in housing because it was a student housing furthermore in flatmating. I spent more in food and overall because the cost of life is higher then in my country. Finally I spent more in nightlife and travels because I enjoy the life here and I discovered the country and the neighbouring countries.
