My name is Ester Alda and I have been living in Coimbra, Portugal this semester. I was the only third-year student going on an exchange this year, which has been an experience that I will be forever grateful for.

Living in Portugal for around five months, and studying at one of Europe’s oldest universities, has been a total adventure from the beginning to the end. I want to write about some of the highlights, and some struggles, I experienced during this exchange.
