Brighton & Hove: Living the Exchange Dream

Unfortunately, I didn’t have the opportunity to be one of those very cool kids who goes abroad in high school. Once I started my graduation I wanted save up money and make my dream come true. The first thing I had to decide was where I to go. I did a lot of research – and when I say a lot I mean months searching for the right place. I asked friends who have already done this, I went to few travel and exchange agencies, I looked  online, and did some calls to the cousins of that not very close friend. Finally, I made my decision and found the place that better fitted for me: Brighton & Hove, UK.
