Had a great first week in Portugal. Working in Oliverde an accountancy firm in the centre of Braga, with two other students. Living in an huge 5 bedroom apartment ideally located across the road from Braga Parque every shopaholics dream mall. The apartments have everything you could ever need, even WI-FI !!!
Before we got down to the work side of things we were taken on tours to see dom jesus do monte and Sameiro two of the most beautiful churches I’ve ever seen. The architecture of these churches is something you must see if in the area. Bragamolibity really do think of everything with the excursions, and the transportation to and from the work placements, all you need to do is turn up.
After we completed our first week at our work placements we were taken to Porto were we had a guided tour or the city, is really is a spectacular city to see, with some some magical view points.
Erasmus is as much about embracing the culture of Portugal along with the work placement it truly is a unique experience that will i will cherish forever. The trips and work is full on, but if you come with a positive attitude and an open mind you will thrive throughout the experience.
