Norma: The experience was unforgettable. We were housed in a picturesque house outside the city, it was surrounded by forest, and, as we were in March, it was all snowy so it was really fun to be able to play with the sledges and throw snowballs at the companions.During our stay, we were only served with Bulgarian food, which helped us become familiar with their cuisine and culture.
During our tenure we met many interesting people who showed us traditions of their culture, their language, experiences and opinions, and in this respect the visit was very enriching.
As for the excursions, they were great, one day they took us to Sofia and we were able to visit the city and before the exchange ended they brought us to see a medieval ruin.
Ona: If I had to describe the experience with a word, it would be unique. It was short but intense. In this Erasmus we were able to enjoy a great diversity of cultures which we were able to see.
Traditional meals from Bulgaria, we had them in the house day by day thanks to the cook sample, a woman who made the days more cheerful and happy.
The house was located at 1:30 h from the city, almost on the mountain, so we could enjoy the landscapes and snow day after day.
Then we were able to frustrate some sorts of outlets like Sofia, the capital and the ruins, and so we could learn more about Bulgaria’s country.
To conclude, the activities we worked at home were very reflective and profitable and helped us learn a lot of new knowledge that we can apply in our area.
Sam: It was a unique and unforgettable experience, as mentioned before, the place is very far from the city, so Sofia has only been known for a few hours, the place where we stayed was very rural, made of wood, with a wood-burning fireplace and on the other hand, the excursions that we went to Sofia, walking through the mountains, seeing the runes, etc., were unforgettable places and a new experience because places like this are not seen anywhere, and apart from that, the food, when experiencing and trying their Meals were interesting since they always or most of the
time eat soups and stews, and they also usually eat pork, which is the most common in Bulgaria. In conclusion, it was a new experience that I have lived and on a personal level it has helped me to meet more people just as it has helped me to learn English.
