Moscow, Russia - amazing, vibrant, challenge, absolute must  Moscow was brilliant; an amazing, hedonistic atmosphere, the friendliest people I have ever met and I had the chance to make connections I'll maintain for a lifetime. Such a fun place to explore too - I drove to Suzdal and Vladimir which I highly recommend. Whether you're working or studying, the key to making it work is to speak to people! Don't be shy or refuse a night out -  that's your chance to meet new people.

Useful local words: 'пижо́н'.

What not to pack: Too many books.

What to pack: A warm coat.

Couldn't have done without: (Skype!), good shoes and a sense of humour.

Word of advice: When it comes to your third year abroad, don't worry too much about it - everyone has difficulties at first. The best thing to do regarding accommodation is to go out to your city in the summer, if possible, and spend a week or so there to get it sorted before you arrive. Come September, doing anything is a nightmare and could well put you off the city and the experience.
