Embarking on your Erasmus journey is exciting but can also feel a bit overwhelming. In this blog post, we aim to provide you with valuable insights into our Erasmus apartments, as well as the sense of community our students experience by sharing apartments during their projects. These living spaces are suitable to enhance your Erasmus project experience by providing all the basics and necessities you need for a seamless stay in Athens, and by creating space for new friendships and memories with your flatmates! 💫
About the Apartments:
Our trusted partner for Erasmus+ accommodation, "Moments Athens", ensures that our apartments are convenient, cozy and comfortable. “Moments Athens” is a family business run with passion and commitment by Manos and Fay, who form our Accommodation Team. During your stay, they are available to help you and answer any questions you have. 😊
All our apartments are fully equipped with modern amenities, offering a private bathroom, an equipped kitchen, reliable WiFi and optional laundry service. Whether you prefer a private balcony or enjoy socializing on a sunny roof terrace, our apartments offer a range of options for a relaxed breakfast or evening hangouts!
Location is key, and HostEd's apartments are situated within minutes from our office in the charming area of Neos Kosmos. In this quiet and safe neighborhood you will be just a short walk away from supermarkets, pharmacies, cafés, bakeries, and shops, ensuring that everything you need is within easy reach. The center of Athens and the Acropolis are just a 15-minute walk away, while the beach is a convenient 30-minute ride by bus or tram.
The Erasmus Experience: Living Together in Harmony
Embarking on an Erasmus project is not just about academic and professional growth; it's also about building connections and creating memories that last a lifetime!
One of the most rewarding aspects of living with other Erasmus students is the opportunity to make new friends. Shared experiences, explorations of the city, and visits to local sights become the building blocks of lasting friendships. These shared activities not only make the living experience more enjoyable but also contribute to a sense of belonging and community.
However, living with people you don't know can present its own set of challenges. Different habits or working hours due to internships in various companies may lead to conflicting schedules, requiring flexibility and compromise. Adaptation becomes key as you learn to navigate shared spaces and find common ground with flatmates.
These challenges, while real, are part of the transformative experience of an internship abroad. Learning to communicate, make compromises, and appreciate the diversity of schedules and habits can be valuable skills that extend beyond your time in Athens.
In the end, the challenges of shared living are temporary, and the memories and experiences you gain during your internship abroad are forever. At HostEd, we are committed to making your Erasmus experience in Athens not just a stay but a chapter in your life story filled with growth, connections, and unforgettable moments. ✨
