A voyage to the ‘Universidad de Valladolid’ with ‘Erasmus+ KA 107’ scholarship, Jojo Panakal John

The journey in a bus from the capital city of Madrid to Valladolid through the solitary and far-reaching fields and small towns in between was very much relaxing after a very long monotonous air travel.

My name is Nguyen Thi Thuy Linh. I am a student in Vietnam National University – Hanoi University of Science. I want to show you a great deal of amazing experience that I gained during the time living and studying in the University of Valladolid (UVa).

In the winter, it was freezing cold and dry but rarely snowy.  I could not wear any T-shirt till the end of April.

I was quite confident to say that I can even move to Arctic to live after I experienced the weather in Valladolid.

Thoughts flooded my mind with respect to the climate, the food and the people of Spain. Nevertheless, I firmly knew that this will be an experience I shall cherish for the rest of my life.
