Having the opportunity to study, work, live (!) abroad is for me an outstanding chance and experience. Before leaving France to live this adventure, I was already enthusiastic, but my excitation rose when I new I was about to go for few months in San Francisco. I can explain this with three reasons :
- Firstly, because I had never been to the United States before. I love traveling and I had always wanted to discover and visit this country.
- Secondly, because California is a famous and beautiful state. It is also very attractive as for the cultural and the economic aspects. Its proximity with Mexico, for example, and its dynamism thanks to the Silicon Valley makes it appealing.
- And thirdly, because San Francisco is such a great city too ! Known for its bridge, it belongs to the world's most important and famous hub : the Silicon Valley.
I have always been told that the difference between United States and France is huge, as for the mentality (Americans are more friendly, the relation to money and its perception is different too), the proportions of things (everything's bigger in the US) or the way of life all simply ! The American way of life is not a myth, it does exist. It is something I really want to discover and experiment. To tell you all, I expect a lot from this trip. I won't tell you more about it now, I prefer to discover all of this first. But don't worry, I'll keep you updated of all the things that will strike me, and for sure, there will be a lot.
