* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)

A student's budget is different for every city ... For example in Madrid with $110- $160 budget for a week is enough and will provide you 2-3 good meals a day. But if you are visiting Paris you should have at least have $250-$300 a week to have 2-3 good meals a day. Please note that this budget does not include side trips.

Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? Search places to eat and visit in trip advisor or yelp before hand. This doesn't really save you money but it does save you time and give you idea how much you are going to spend so you could plan your budget realistically. Also Voyager Europe will definitely provide useful tips prior to the trip and as you go along in the trip :)


* Did your program have a foreign language component? Yes
How much did the program encourage you to use the language?

0 = No encouragement, 5 = frequent encouragement to use the language

They do send you basic phrases and words to learn. It's really up to you if you want to make use of it ;)

The Avid Adventurer
The wardrobe you packed was better suited for a semester of camping than club hopping. Outdoorsy, you might forgo a crazy night out for an early all-day adventure. You'd rather take in the rich culture of an old town than the metropolis of a modern city, but for you getting off the grid is ideal.
