- Paris On My Own02/29/16
I had been to Paris before as a part of a group, and I'd studied Paris as a history minor at school, so going abroad to continue to study was what I thought to be a great idea. Visiting the sites, learning about the history, meeting new people, was a
fantastic part of the trip, but with the summer program, and having lived in a single on my own, I was somewhat separated from everyone. Our singles, all nine of us who had them, were all spread out, as was other housing. So after I went to class, toured on my own, and maybe sat outside for a bit, I was back to being alone. The issue was that there was no warning to this. I assumed housing was at least near each other, not in the various arrondisemonts around the city. With more information available for the summer program, I would have probably had a better time. That being said, the time spent and sites seen were certainly worth it.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
