I did study abroad in Costa Rica studying geology.

If I got to do it again I would stick with geology but I'd go to Iceland. I want to stand on a rift zone (two tectonic plates moving away from one another).

I studied bioarchaeology in Bolivia (twice) and in Romania, then studied history and languages in Singapore while an undergrad, so those two are places I wish I had a chance to visit.

International law and how the alternative disputed resolution is used outside the U.S. I'd like to look at England, France, Italy, Canada, Germany and Russia. I'm sure I would refine this list with research before going.

History in Germany. I was originally going to apply to do all of my university abroad in Germany, but it never materialised so I'm staying in the UK unfortunately

Cultural anthropology (I don't know if that's specific enough or too specific for a major - I didn't go to college) at Oxford in England.

Aeronautical and Space Engineering at IPSA Paris. There are plenty of similarly good schools here in the US, but none of them is in Paris. www.ipsa.fr

I had wanted to go to Spain, like @kay41, but I ended up going to Argentina instead. I absolutely loved Argentina and I'm grateful that I ended up there instead. ¡Me encanto la Argentina!

A francophone country because I study French. France is my top choice for study abroad, but many other francophone countries in Africa and Europe would be amazing to visit at some point.

We are starting a business running international education programs through our non-profit organization. Looking for ideas! We're also planning on doing programs in the US for European students.
We are also looking into non-credit educational programs for non-university students; anyone could go!

I did that in 1983, although I did not host one of the other students. It was an amazing trip.

The town I was in was a small town in southern Germany called Breton. I believe we went to fussen , I think Stuttgart , and I know we did day trips to France and Austria

Going to the gymnasium means going to school

You will have an amazing time. This cities are very clean, the people are very friendly, the beer is excellent.

The biggest adjustment I had when I was there We're the Millers we're in totally different. Breakfast was a cup of coffee or hot chocolate and a slice of cake, what was the big meal... People went home for lunch, and dinner was a bowl of soup and a beer or something similarly light.

Try the Applecorn it is delicious
