During my academic career, both as a student and as a young researcher, I had the opportunity to study and work abroad. Honestly, no experience has been more rewarding than that one. Living in another country and experiencing its culture and habits put me – and many of my local prejudices – at test.
This process definitely enriched me and opened my mind: I saw things from another perspective, learned alternative methods of studying and approaching life in general, as well as broadened my horizons. As far as I am concerned, living abroad is a process that every citizen of our global era should have the opportunity to do, at least once in a lifetime.
