I post this topic here,because there seems to be alotta people from the countries mentioned below or have been to there.If this is the wrong place to post this,please transfer or delete it.It's just okay,thank you.
I'm going to visit Europe in the coming July as an exchange student.The major routine is Paris→Lyon→Provence→Swizerland(havent known the precise destination till now)→Barcelona→Madrid.Despite the time spent in class,I still have a lot of leisure time to wander around.
About my detail info.My native language is Chinese,and I can speak fluent english and a little German.But I cant speak a single word of French and Spanish.It's not easy to pick up them within a month,isnt it?
Besides,it's my first time to come to Europe.The whole travel will take 3 weeks.Almost two weeks in France,1 day in Switzerland and the rest in Spain.
So,in a word,my major questions are:
1.What typical tourist attractions should I visit?
2.I wanna bring some gifts back for my family and friends,but I dont have a large budget.So i need some advice.
3.what should i get prepared before the depature from Shanghai?(ie:finance,culture,language etc.)The departure is probably on 10th July
4.I wanna mail some postcards to my friends when in France.Does Eiffle Tower or do any other tourist spots provide such service?What about the fee?
I will value every reply.Thank you so much!!!!
