Because at home I used to live with my parents, so I don't spend nothing for food,telephone and housing. There I travelled more, but the nightlife in Spain is cheaper than in my country.

Final comments
At the end I think that erasmus is good in any city that you go, here you can go out 3 days a week for big fiesta, you don't pay to much, is a small city, and it's too simple to know and to meet people.It's not a city that offer too much things, but you have the sea, the discos, and more than 100 international students....it's not so bad!!!:D My experience was too good....de puta madre!!!
