Brian Tye (JU) is a junior double majoring in Economics and International Business with a minor in French. Last summer, he backpacked by himself through France for almost two months and got to follow the Tour de France bike race! He also got to practice his French as he traveled by train, bus and plane through France and stayed at locals’ houses thanks to a website called couchsurfing.org . He learned a lot about the French culture as he interacted in everyday French life and followed his hosts around town. He plans to return to France after he graduates in 2013 to do some more traveling and continue to study French until he is fluent.
