Reflecting back on this amazing experience, I can only say that it was like a dream and I am so grateful to God, my family, my professors and the wonderful friends that I met.
My expectations before the trip were of uncertainty and excitement. I was concerned about the well being of my family and the language barrier. Fortunately, all worked out so well and I had the best time in Paris.
I was so relieved when I made it safely from the airport to FIE, the studentst residence. Once I joined of the group my fears disappeared and little by little, I became more comfortable riding the metro and moving around the city.
As I began my classes, activities such as visiting museums, chateaus and cathedrals only added more to my magnificent experience.
I was also looking forward to participate in history classes that would challenge and enriched my knowledge on this subject. By the end of our classes, I felt the satisfaction of having learned so much in just a month.
Everything about the trip was just perfect! All the people who participated on this trip were just fun,sweet and loving.
Some of my favorite moments were being able to attend Mass everyday at Notre Dame and becoming friends with those who saw me there daily. I also loved my roommate who was so patient with my early rises and late nights studying. I tried not to make noise for her but the wooden floors didn’t help.
As I get ready to my new adventure in London, I give thanks to God for loving me so much. I hope to treasure the friendships that I made and perhaps one day reunite again.
