I learned how to bike! And now have a lifelong skill. I've started biking since coming back to America and love having it as a hobby/activity that I can do. Also, I learned how to be more independent, especially cooking for myself and planning trips. Overall, it was extremely worthwhile! - Wellesley College View Entire Review
