We decided on the 3-week Strasbourg/Paris trip and the rest was history. In this paper I will highlight some of my most memorable experiences, as well as how the trip changed my views on European culture and how their culture changed me as well.

We were touring the city and getting acquainted with where we were located, and then all of a sudden we turned the corner and here was this stunning cathedral that towered over the rest of the city. The sheer size and detail on the cathedral was stunning enough but then to find out how long ago the cathedral was built just makes you question how something of this magnitude was accomplished…
