I enjoyed the consistent schedule that was usually jam-packed with places to learn about and visit. Even when their were free days, I enjoyed the opportunity to see a location depending on my preference for the experience.
The most important aspect of traveling abroad for architectural students, is the ability to see how other cultures address the natural and built environment firsthand. This experience will forever change the way I design.
The free days were the best, though you have to be motivated to take advantage of them. Don't sit around in the hotel or take it easy, push yourself to be just as active as when you are on an itinerary. Kayaking the river in Ljubljana was a highlight.
