A beautiful but fast paced experience you will not forget. Past Review

By (Berea College) - abroad from 12/26/2017 to 01/06/2018 with

KIIS: Paris - Munich Winter Program

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
I gained confidence in using public transportation and navigating in a foreign city since we were given much independence. The experience was certainly worthwhile and I will not forget how beautiful marienplatz is during New years eve.
