Every year ISAFIS make collaboration with International Week to provide international exchanges of social culture, business, and academic during one week at many countries abroad for Indonesian students, espesically ISAFIS members who dare to join this event. On the end of period, the third International Week that had been joined by ISAFIS members were International Week at Barcelona.
International Week Barcelona (IW Barcelona) held from 6th until 13th September 2019. ISAFIS sent its representative to join this International Week at Barcelona . Our representative is Layla Dutha Faradiba from Media Communication and Design division. Here are some reports from Layla about how well her week spent at Barcelona.
“Regarding this IW, honestly speaking, I had some bad experiences in Barcelona. However, despite of those, IW Barcelona was great!
Besides the city Barcelona itself is already such a beauty, this IW exceptionally enhanced that renowned character of the city.
We did many visits to historical places such as Parc Güell, Bunkers, and as well as Sagrada Familia.
But for me personally, IW Barcelona’s highlight was the Treasure Hunt, where we did fun challenges as well as having city exploration.
Another thing was the Brunch in the Park, which was the first festival that I’ve ever gotten into and it was already great.
However the one that really touches my heart was the host family I had during the week. It was really hard to believe that they were so accepting and welcoming to me from the beginning we first met. They were unbelievably very kind and lovely. I even felt that they already treated me like their own family. I am so blessed that I was paired with them. Overall, I didn’t regret that I participated in this IW at all. IW Barcelona was one of the wonderful experiences I’ve ever had.”
