    • Any time that I think about travelling I think of EF. I used to see the world as an impenetrable thing, far beyond my reach. EF has shown me that overseas travel is not only affordable, but also easy, and dare I say so much fun! While away from home it is really important to feel that you are still part of a safe community that will be there for you should any problems arise. The staff, both abroad and at home, are fantastic, understanding of the travails of travel, studying a new culture and language and are always ready to help and guide. At EF travel dreams, are realities. Bon voyage mes amis!
