During the summer after my freshman year of college, I had the opportunity to spend 3.5 weeks in Europe. My brother was studying abroad at the University of Leicester in England, so we thought it would be fun to travel around and live like poor traveling students for a few weeks (and boy did we!)
We encountered some very interesting people, and had some innnnteresting experiences- from almost getting robbed on the Metro in Paris, to me having my first Guinness, to finding out the beach we were on in Nice was in fact a topless beach (AWKWARD). Some hostels were pretty nice, others were....questionable. But all in all, it was a blast, and we still have fun reminiscing about it.
I consider myself SO incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel overseas. It's an experience I will never forget, and given the chance I would go back in a heartbeat. If you haven't done it already, what are you waiting for?!?! And hey, if you really want me to, I can give you the name of that beach...
