Senior John Lincourt of Greensboro
- What was your favorite experience on this trip?
“I have two favorite experiences on the Europe tour. The first, in France during our free day, the group I was with decided to ‘get lost in France.’ It was magnificent. I sat at a café next to Notre Dame de Paris, and watched the world go by, ate a croque-monseuir, then ended up in the middle of Paris talking broken French and English to a native, who loves Americans and bought me a drink. My second, besides singing in the chapels, was the last day in Europe – in Germany. I had an eight-hour conversation with an Earl – Prince of Prague, a tour of a royal hotel, then ate breakfast with him – saw some beautiful sites – absolutely wonderful, breath-taking, then walked around the town, shopped, then had a great dinner with dancing to Polka music, then sang – this was a totally amazing experience.”
- How has your perspective changed on this trip?
“Definitely now know, by looking at people from different countries, nothing is different. But, not everyone hates Americans, but also, there is so much out there to enjoy. And, though not much visually is different, there is more than the U.S., especially when girls are in question.”
- What have you learned through your experiences?
“I have learned more French – that I love France – it is beautiful and the culture is great.”
