Where did you choose to study abroad and how was your experience? Any favorite places?

I studied abroad in Germany. My favorite part about it was that I got to visit every place I wanted to. Amsterdam was definitely one of my favorites.

I studied abroad in Istanbul, Turkey. My favorite thing to do was to explore Istanbul itself, the old city, and the emerging European side. I also traveled around the Mediterranean, which was a fantastic experience.
