Favorite Study Abroad Memory: Getting to experience the annual Festival of Lights (Fête des Lumières) in Lyon by walking around the city, mesmerized by all of the different light shows that lit up the entire city at night. Enjoying the tranquility of the Jefferson Memorial at night, sitting on the steps,  while in Washington, D.C.
Other Travel Locations: While studying abroad in France, I chose to explore the city I was in, the little towns surrounding it, and a couple of the big ones, because I prefer taking my time exploring places.
Top Advice for Sun Devils Going Abroad: Time flies while you are there, make sure to plan a few trips before you go there and make a list of places you want to go to. Start crossing things off of your list from the moment you get there, don’t leave anything for later, because in a blink of an eye you are on your way back home. But, also, be open to taking spontaneous trips with your friends, or by yourself. Every experience will teach you something new about yourself and life, so be ready to learn and explore!
