One of the best parts about living in Europe for a semi-extended period of time is the ease in which you can jump on a plane and go nearly anywhere for less than $100.
On the other hand, one of the worst parts about living in Europe for a semi-extended period of time is picking a place to go.
As Paris is a large city and is fairly centrally located, it's almost too easy to find a new adventure, which can be dangerous for someone with a tight budget, no matter how inexpensive the trip might be.
I knew coming into my semester in Paris that I would want to travel, so I saved accordingly, and I am so glad I did, because I have been able to visit so many great places and experience different cultures during my time here.
With Ireland, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands under my belt, I have already done my fair share of travel, and I am looking forward to my future expeditions, even if my bank account isn't.
I wouldn't go so far as to say that I am out of control, but I did book a flight to Iceland as I stood in line to board a plane to Amsterdam, so I'm walking a pretty thin line at this point. With less than a month left in Europe, I want to make sure I see as much as I can!
