Student Journals: AIFS in Cannes, France

Heather Soldano
Wheelock College
Collège International de Cannes, France

When I said goodbye to Cannes in June 2006 after a perfect, sunny semester abroad, I hoped that it was more of a "see you soon/ a bientot" parting. I couldn't say enough wonderful things about my experiences at the College International de Cannes to anyone who would listen, and I was thrilled when I heard that my sister Sarah had decided to study abroad there with AIFS too! Right away I began planning my return trip to Cannes over my April vacation from my teaching job, excited to visit Sarah and to share my memories of the French Riviera with my boyfriend Bill. The college and Cannes were exactly how I remembered them, and I enjoyed every moment of our week vacation. It was so nice to see Sandrine and Aude from AIFS, and my (now Sarah's!) french teacher Sylvie, and Patrick (the director of the college and the theater teacher for both of us!). I hope that this was not my last visit to Cannes; Sarah and I have to start planning a return trip with our parents next!
