Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits
Food and housing were included in my initial costs for the program. I did not use the telephone nearly as much as I do at home therefore costs were lower. Finally, travel was more expensive because I traveled much more than I would have at home.

If you plan to travel a lot it will save you money to buy a Eurail pass. As well, for filling but cheap food there are low-cost tapas and bocadillas.
