I would like to begin by expressing my heartfelt gratitude for the incredible support and opportunities provided by the Erasmus+ program and SWU “Neofit Rilski.” My journey to Bulgaria was nothing short of a paradise on Earth, and I am excited to share my enriching experience.

From the moment I stepped foot in Bulgaria, I knew I was in for a remarkable adventure. This beautiful country welcomed me with open arms, and every day was a new chapter in my life’s story. My time at SWU “Neofit Rilski” was a profound learning experience that extended beyond the classroom.

One of the most significant aspects of my mobility was the growth I experienced in my professional life. The university’s academic environment was truly inspiring. The professors were not only knowledgeable but also incredibly supportive, nurturing our academic pursuits. I found myself delving deeper into my studies, pushing my boundaries, and gaining a deeper understanding of my field.

However, my Erasmus+ journey was not solely about academics. The warmth and hospitality of the people at SWU “Neofit Rilski” made me feel at home in a foreign land.

It allowed me to forge friendships with fellow students from diverse cultural backgrounds. These international connections broadened my horizons and gave me a global perspective on life.

I must extend my sincere thanks to Mr. Ivanov for his unwavering support and guidance throughout my stay. His mentorship was invaluable, and it played a pivotal role in my academic and personal growth. I was fortunate enough to participate in international conferences, such as the FMns, where I presented my project. This experience not only boosted my confidence but also allowed me to interact with professionals from around the world.

As I reflect on my four-month journey, I am overwhelmed with gratitude and nostalgia. These months will forever be etched in my memory as a time of personal and academic growth, filled with cherished memories. There’s a saying, “A life without memories is often a life without a future,” and I wholeheartedly agree. My time in Bulgaria has left me with a treasure trove of memories that will guide me toward a promising future.

Among the places I had the privilege to visit, Sofia, Bansko, and Bachinov stand out as enchanting destinations. Each had its unique charm, offering me a glimpse into Bulgaria’s rich culture and history. Exploring these cities allowed me to immerse myself in the local culture, taste delicious cuisine, and witness breathtaking landscapes.

In conclusion, my Erasmus+ mobility at SWU “Neofit Rilski” was a transformative journey that enriched my academic and personal life.
