Senior Riker Gold of Concord
- What was your favorite experience on this trip?
“Watching the Eiffel Tower light up and sparkle at 1 a.m. was the most meaningful experience for me on this trip.”
- How has your perspective changed on this trip?
“My perspective has changed on the French in that they eat several nasty dishes (tartar). I also found that people in Europe are nicer to Americans than I thought they would be.”
- What have you learned through your experiences?
“I learned that you can’t get the same great taste of food and drinks at home as you can in their home country. I learned that Europe is much more beautiful than described, especially the Alps. I learned that the soldiers patrolling Paris can be intimidating and that the Paris Metro is very clean compared to ours.”
