People might think that you spent half a year in Europe only to drink heavily and upload thousands of photos to Facebook, but you know better. You went abroad for the cultural experience. You know, like awkwardly trying to rapidly translate numbers while paying for groceries late at night. You went abroad to explore how frugal you could be when it came to airfare and how many baguettes you could eat before lunch time. You fought off suitors in night clubs, became numb to castle interiors and immune to cheap wine hangovers. You learned a lot about yourself and had the time of your life while doing it.
