Just checking if anyone going to paris at the same time I am. June 8 -16. Maybe can meet in Paris. This is my First trip to Europe. A little scared, know very little French. I tried to learn. It is a very hard language. Plus still looking for a place to stay, budget 30Euro. I guess have to be Hostels. I was going to rent a room from a couple I found on Craigslist, But I ask to many question of the couple. I am coming from American So I thought I would feel more comfortable seeing a photo of them, I send them mine. They said asking them for a photo is like asking a hotel to send photos of their employees you can't decide if person is good or bad by a photo. So I let that go, then I ask for their full name so My parent could have a name. The said no I don't need that. That I need to learn to be more trusting and they felt sorry for me. SO THIS IS NOW STRESSING ME, Am I that crazy non trust American. Is thing really that open don't ask question of each other?
I am going on a study abroad trip in photography to Italy May 24 until June 8. then I decide to take myself to Paris. Now I feeling overwhelmed. Help! talk me through this. Thanks
