Posadas, Spain - typical small whitewashed Andalusian town There weren’t that many students my own age in the town itself but there were plenty of bars, a few discos and chances to go out. Cordoba was not too far away, either, so I got the chance to travel across Southern Spain. Don't rule out living in a small town; you can get a lot more out of it than living in a big city as you really get the chance to throw yourself in the local community and get to grips with the culture.

Useful local words: 'Tío', 'caracoles', 'salmorejo'.

What not to pack: Less books and jumpers, less preconceptions of what it would be like!

What to pack: Flip-flops and my camera.

Couldn't have done without: Teabags!

Word of advice: Try not to have too many preconceptions of what it's going to be like; you'll enjoy your time out on your year abroad if you just go with the flow.
