I chose Germany as my exchange destination since I have studied the language for a couple of years and because I have been snowboarding over there at the alps.
My school was located about five kilometers away from where I lived. I traveled to school every time by bicycle. The school itself was nice and they had very good food but the prices were very expensive..
Since I only had school 3 days a week I had lots of spare time. Most of the spare time I spent with a close Belgian friend. We went to the gym together, watched movies and went to parties, it was awesome!
We also went to Oktoberfest a couple of time and had really good times!
Also spent one entire week in the Alps in Austria, the weather could not have been better!
DIFFERENCES COMPARED TO SCHOOLS IN FINLAND
In Munich the school was very punctual, all the lessons and lectures started exactly on time. School food was much more expensive and the only way of paying for stuff in school was by first uploading money (cash) to your student card.
