Na zdraví from Brno!

What can I say, I’ve lost my heart to Czech republic. I’ve had the time of my life here, meeting new people, studying in a well-respected university and every day experiencing something new. The life here has opened my eyes in a whole new way – the way I see the world.

Studying here has been fascinating and I have to say I honestly didn’t lose my interest in studying at any point. The faculty of mechanical engineering – and particularly the institute of aerospace engineering – is awesome. They offer a lot of interesting courses and the professors know what they’re talking about. They have many labs where they do tests and in one course the teacher even took students to fly whenever they wanted to. I’d highly recommend this university for aeronautical engineering students!

My exchange was a bit different than usually, since I have a boyfriend here. So, I wasn’t living in the dorms but I still made a lot of new friends and got countless of new experiences. On my spare time I was hanging out with my friends, going out to pubs or visiting my boyfriend’s parents in the countryside on the mountains.

You can’t really describe everything about an exchange with words. It’s something one should just see. It will change the way you look at certain things. And like they say – once Erasmus, always Erasmus.
