Yes in Paris France. I enjoyed my stay very much and adapted quickly to the new customs and culture. It was an enriching experience which I still cherish today. I am still very fond of the French way of living, language and cooking.
Yes, we can definitely learn a lot from foreign cultures! I lived in France for a year (6 months in Paris and 6 months in Nice) and I also loved their food and I think their language is the most beautiful one in the world.
I was born in Germany but I lived in Hungary, France, Lithuania for several years, and I spent more than three months in Denmark and Estonia, it was always a great experience to learn more about other cultures.
I lived in Salzburg, Austria for a short little while when I was a kid. Then, I ended-up in Toronto, Canada. Both places were foreign and both times I found myself in a country where I did not speak the language. It was fun!
I enjoy learning new things: customs, traditions, etc. I travel quite a bit too though. I guess the travel bug bit me pretty hard and there's no stop now. The world is a big place with many wonderful countries. This wolf will keep going!
By the way, Salzburg is gorgeous! I have a feeling You might have visited it (since You are from across the mountains there).
I haven't been to Salzburg yet, unfortunately. I come from Cologne, Germany and I have seen and lived in some places in Europe like France, but there are still many places I want to travel to.It's definitely fun learning a language with real natives!
