Study Abroad Series are little flashback narrations of my study abroad experience in Europe.
It had been an excruciating half semester. Going back to school was hard, the subjects were alien to me and I had a hard time readjusting myself to the school rhythm after being in the corporate world for several years. When the holiday came, I was relieved and only had one destination in mind: Paris. I stepped out into the ground of Gare Montparnasse and found myself being back in Paris. Memories rushed as I remembered my first time there, 11 years ago. The autumn sky was kind, giving me blue sky and even a hint of warm weather. I screamed to my travel buddy : “WE ARE IN PARIS!”. The trees were still bare, but the flowers were bright and lovely. It was indeed the welcome I needed.
