People might think that you spent half a year in Europe only to drink heavily and upload thousands of photos to Facebook, but you know better. You went abroad for the cultural experience. You know, like awkwardly trying to rapidly translate numbers while paying for groceries late at night. You went abroad to explore how frugal you could be when it came to airfare and how many baguettes you could eat before lunch time. You fought off suitors in night clubs, became numb to castle interiors and immune to cheap wine hangovers. You learned a lot about yourself and had the time of your life while doing it.

At first you scoffed at the one-euro bottles of wine, but then you drank that stuff like it was water.
You annoyed your friends back home by posting an average of 2,000 photos like this weekly on Facebook.
You scoffed at other Americans, even though you knew everyone could identify you as an American by your shoes.
You experienced no greater feeling of genius than when you successfully navigated public transit in a new city.
You would get overly excited when somebody started to talk to you, even if you didn't understand what they were saying.
