Personal spending habits
The reason why I spent less on food is that this is generally cheaper than back home. My telephone bill also was reduced, mainly because most of the students found it a bit hard to speak German in the telephone. Accomodation is quite expensive in Cologne, especially when you want to live close to everything which I did. I also spent a lot on travelling because there is a lot to see in the middle of Europe.

Personal spending habits
I spent more on accomodation because the school did not find a place for me in a campus, but a room in an appartment, which is normally more expensive. The food is cheaper in Germany then in Denmark. The phone expenses were lower then in Denmark, as I used no mobile phone while I lived in Germany. The train prices are similar to Denmark, so i spent the same amount on travelling.

Always is good to ask the students from the last semester if they could keep the things for you in the host country and not to through it away (for instance SIM card, bet clothing, pillow and blanket, dishes, bicycle...)

Well in terms of nightlife, I'd spend more, because drinks were usually more expensive and in Porto, I manage to get a lot of free drinks.

Do a discount railway card if you tend to travel in Germany and have no car. After 2 trips it pays off.
