MY MAGICAL ADVENTURE
"I arrived in Riga on the 23rd of March, completely excited and ready for starting my traineeship. At first, it was a bit hard to get used to being alone and to know the city because I was new but soon I started to meet people and to feel comfortable in Riga.
The city is amazing, is not big at all but super cute. The city center with all its narrow streets and squares is cozy. I was feeling great about living in such a different place than my town.
Related to my traineeship experience, the first day I was feeling a bit nervous because I did not know the place, the institution, the people... However, Anda and Irina (my two coordinators) were there to make me feel comfortable and secure. I did not feel alone anytime, they were always there to help me and to take care of me if I had any problem.
I could enjoy being with surgeons and nurses and for me it was a complete pleasure. I also enjoyed going to the Red Cross Medical College, where I attended conferences, sightseeing tours and lots of activities.
Due to Erasmus I have grown personally and professionally talking. I can't relate all of the advantages of participating in the Erasmus programme. I have become more independent, I have made lots of friends from all around the world, I have improved different languages, I have travelled a lot and of course, I have learnt a lot of things related to my profession with my traineeship.
I think is a magical experience, I have wonderful memories and I cheer everybody up to take part in this incredible adventure!
PALDIES RĪGA!" <3
