  2. 2. Why Do I Travel? Insert Photo of Yourself • Why we chose this tour? We chose this tour because it is simply one of the most beautiful regions of France full of history and very nice sceneries. We do not want to just stay in Paris with my students for the entire stay but we especially want to give them the opportunity to see an aspect of France you do not see in the United States: old castles still standing up centuries later in all their beauty. •D.Arnaud, my travel experience: French Polynesia where I lived, Morocco where I lived also, France where I was born and raised, Switzerland (boarding school), Spain, Italy, England where I lived, went to school and worked, Germany for summer school, Mexico, Canada, the US, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Austria and Scotland. •S.Zahedi, my travel experience: Iran (where I was born), Switzerland (where I went to middle school), Paris (where I lived for 2 years), Bruges (Belgium), Diano Marina (Italy), Berlin (Germany). In France, I have visited many cities during my trips: Lille, Rouen, Honfleur, Étretat, Dijon, Lyon, Montpellier, Nice, Tours, the Loire Valley, and Minerve. the experience is everything About D.Arnaud & S.
