Personal spending habits
Most food is cheaper when at the supermarket. Most restaurants are the same though. I had a mobile phone, and the rates were the same as a mobile calling card plan. My apartment was a lot cheaper than in the U.S. Most bars and disos were cheaper, although a few are more expensive. Travel was cheaper mainly just because public transportation was a lot cheaper.

Personal comments
If you are going to be using buses (main form of public transportaion), I highly suggest buying a "bonobus" ticket, which is 10 rides on any bus. It is half the price of paying the driver every time. Same goes for the local trains. If you have to take the train everyday, buy a monthly pass to save money.

Personal spending habits
I didn´t have a fixed telephone so I had to call from my mobile or from a public telephone. Generally the rents are cheaper in Spain. The nightlife is less expensive than in Germany, but I went out more than at home! Even after a few months you still feel like being on holiday! I traveled more than I do in Germany, because I had only a few months to get an impression of the country.

If you want to open a bank account its easiest to just go to the campus and open a bank account at eiher Bancaja (Bancaixa)or Banco Santander Central Hispano. All you need is your passport. At other banks you can be sent all around town to get a residencial card...

The supermarkets are less expensive than in Austria, but I think i spent more money in going to restaurants. Furthermore I realized a few weekend-trips and I think I was spending more money in leisure time activities

Because the food was cheaper, I had to call home several times and only used a mobile phone, nighlife is more expensive and I traveled more in Spain than I would have done in the Netherlands.
