So, you could say that I have experienced the proximity and cooperation between Spain and Portugal in its purest way: living it and feeling it myself.

When I heard for IVY (AEBR) organization, I didn’t have any expectations because I had no idea how it might look like. I heard for volunteering organization around the world but when I talk with older students who were abroad they advised me to be careful because this could be expensive, therefore I check a few of them and then stop thinking about that.
