What if… it happens to you
Living the Erasmus life without fears is necessary to have good memories of your experience. The contrasts of urban life and violence can be very different between your country and Spain. Madrid is a safe city and nevertheless, you have to be careful when you decide to come back home alone at wee hours. If you are used to live in a country where catcalling is not omnipresent, be careful anyway. On the contrary, if you come from a country where the street safety is not present at all, don’t be afraid to go out: you have to make the most of your experience, taking enough precautions and having fun. The app Citymapper can help you finding addresses very quickly. This app has also a button take me home. Remember to set your phone to store emergency numbers (family, friends, Erasmus coordinators…). Everything is important to improve your safety and make you feel safe.
