My favorite part of the trip was getting to bond with my classmates and getting to know a new city together. The class and the instructors were fantastic and I really wish the trip lasted longer.
I found interacting with the locals to be the most rewarding. After meeting people and making small talk, they never hesitated to begin discussing politics or other things about America which they wished to learn about. Additionally, I became much more educated on Brexit. Hearing the views of Europeans on both their national issues, but also on political situations in America, was truly an eye-opening experience.
After a few days in London, I found that I have become much more confident, both in international travel, and in talking, or asking questions, to people that I did not know. I flew to London by myself, dealt with a major flight delay, and navigated downtown London all within twenty - four hours. I can say that confidence that I gained while traveling alone, even in London, was what I found most rewarding.
