I git to see things from an un-american perspective and it was refreshing. I wouldn't trade what I experienced for the world. - Trinity University View Entire Review

I gained great experience doing research and leading tours in a historic home. I also enjoyed more independence, such as doing my own groceries and planning my own trips around Scotland. - Trinity University View Entire Review
