I had an expensive housing situation, usually it is very comparable. I come from a very cheap part of my country, so I expected things to be more expensive. Travel was cheaper though - I love public transportation!

Personal comments
It was really different from in the United States - so much depended on the exams. I thought the grading was harder, but I needed a lower score to pass, so it evened out.

Realize that Pamplona is not a huge city. It is perfect if you like good food, an interesting mix of cultures, and great regional travel opportunities - the mountains and the sea are close by!

Housing
Type of housing: Old woman's house
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
The old woman was nice but in some ways I had the worst parts of both a homestay and an apartment, without the advantages. I basically lived with my landlady.
