Study Abroad Series are little flashback narrations of my study abroad experience in Europe.
I had just arrived in France. These were the first days of my whole year in France. I left my layers of jumpers in my hostel room. I had anticipated a much colder summer, however I was surprised by the warmth of French summer that hit my skin, attempting to brown my already tanned skin. Everything excited my eyes: people eating outside, the smell of fresh crêpes, old buildings that probably have existed for hundreds of years, chatters of people in a language I don’t understand. New friends surrounded me, our smiles silently bonded us, sharing a common feeling of being a stranger in a new country. Those were the days I wish never ended.
