Every weekend we went on longer day trips to Valencia, Benidorm, Elche and Altea. In Valencia we got a lot of free time and during the afternoon we went to the beach, it was good to cool down a bit because of the hot city weather!
One afternoon/evening we went to Altea which is a beautiful town in the mountains and we were going to watch the sunset which was so beautiful between the mountains! We basically got free time most of the time. We took a walk in the town and walked down the beach and just had a good time.
The Spanish food is a bit different to the food here in Sweden but it is obviously different because of what family you live in. The breakfast was very sweet and I got yoghurt, chocolate donuts, fruit, cookies, croissants etc. The lunch was a bit of a variation, I got sandwiches most of the days but with different toppings, hamburger, jamón serrano etc, something to drink and a fruit. And most of the dinner we were eating in town.
As a student you do a few tests the first day in school. The teachers divided us into different classes depending on our knowledge. In my class we were discussing a lot but also writing and learning grammar. The teachers were really good and they new what they were talking about!
