Traveling to the South of France has been my favorite part of my time abroad so far. I didn’t know what to expect at first but seeing the beautiful sights and meeting tons of nice people made me love it here. We visited Collioure, Montpellier, Toulouse, and the castle at Carcassonne. The language barrier between us and the French was a bit comical. When it came to ordering food or asking for directions, we found ourselves speaking Spanish to them. I was expecting the French to have sour attitudes towards all of the American students, but most of the natives spoke just enough English to help us out.
