You will spend more money than you thought you would. Euro to dollars conversions will get you but how can you resist those crepes? It happens and you have the rest of your life to make money. Sometimes memories cost money and this is okay.
You will miss home. Don’t even pretend you won’t. There really is no place like home, it’s just fun to explore the world around you every now and then.
Living in a 6 hour time difference from everyone stinks sometimes. There were many times I told friends goodnight as I was getting up for the day. Really it can just be kind of inconvenient
That high school language class? Yeah, take it seriously! It’ll come in handy.. There is no worse feeling than hopelessly trying to communicate with someone that you can’t understand a word they are saying.
You will have stories to tell that nobody can understand how amazing the experience felt, your pictures won’t do the views justice, and you will have the time of your life. Hands down, guaranteed.
