Expenses

Work opportunities:
I worked during my study abroad experience
Personal spending habits
Food is generally less expensive at the university cafeterias, and groceries seemed to be less too. I used tÚlÚcartes at 50F per card to make international and local calls in France. Taking the train is certainly less expensive than gas prices and domestic airfare in the US. I never experienced a cover charge at a bar or club for that matter in France. Mixed-drinks were perhaps a little on the high side but a good beer in Dijon was only 2.75 USD. Overall, it was cheaper for me to be in France for the summer than it would have been to stay home.

Personal comments
I found that to commute between Dijon and Lyon on the weekends, it was much cheaper to buy the tickets in France than to use a RailPass. Reserve the RailPass for long journeys, otherwise the normal train is much cheaper.

Use the phone less, use the internet more! Find an internet cafe, train station, or tourist office for information.

The dollar/euro exchange is very poor right now. I used my card a lot and was suprised at how expensive it came out of my account.
