Expenses
Main source of funding:
An ERASMUS grant
Other sources of funding:
An ERASMUS grant<br> Other
Work opportunities:
I worked during my study abroad experience
Personal spending habits
Food and travel is a lot cheaper in Italy, however I spent more on trains overall, as I went to visit many different places. I spent less on going out, as the nightlife is a little more tame in Arezzo than a buzzing English University.

Personal comments
Opening a bank account is quite costly and complicated. Its probably best just to use your own card and get out reasonably big sums at a time and look after it.

I spend more because life is too good in Italy! I travelled through Toscana, and went out to eat in restaurants a lot more than in Belgium. On the other hand, my accomodation was cheaper than in Belgium. (I think because it was from the university)

First of all, the exchange rate at the time was still favorable for the US Dollar. But in a small town in Italy, food and housing just cost less than in the States; to be fair, of course, I was equipped with very modest housing in Siena. Transportation is much more well developped, so travel was so much cheaper and more practical, it's almost silly.

No significant surprises, really. Try to save any major traveling for the end of the trip, when you can visit the friends you've made in their homes. Thus, you can embark upon the "trip-of-a-lifetime," and spend a minimal amount of funds.

Because Italy is as expensive as Sweden and sometimes even worse. Our loan from the government were smaller thou Italy was still consider a low-cost country. Plus that I spent far more time and money on social life activities!!
