The 3rd year is a period for venture in some experiences, meet people, share others cultures.
For my first semester I decide to choose an Asian country. It was absolutely not my first choice but finally I chose a continent, a culture, a civilization that I didn’t know and I wanted to discover.
My choice for Project Abroad was natural thanks to past experiences of IPAG students during a meeting. I have speak a lot with them for understand the point of a mission and know some practical information. Then I started to look this organization and realized it propose to me what I really want.
I decided to leave for Thailand after many weeks of deliberation.
I take off from Paris to Krabi. The cultural chock was incredible. First of all the people are a warm. Second the environment with the opulence of the temples, tuk-tuk car and scooters. Then the food is completely different and so much spicy. Furthermore I have to know some things for be polite in front of the people like take off my shoes when you enter somewhere, etc.
Everything was new for me.
