After any initial questions, and once you’ve purchased this option, you’ll arrange a time with your Destination Expert to discuss your project in detail (by phone or video call). They will then get back to you with the information you agreed. From that point you can turn to your Destination Expert with any further questions to help you plan everything perfectly.

Your Destination Expert knows their city inside out. They can help you find the right area to live in, help with your flat search (putting you in contact with professionals if web search is not the best option for you), help with transport options, medical contacts and can basically help with any questions using their local network.

When it comes to looking for accommodation, we are here to give you all the tips to do just that! We’ll show you the best websites to search and how we as locals look for a room or a flat so you don’t fall into any traps. We will make suggestions and help you with choosing the right one, put you in contact with potential landlords we  know of in our network. Or if you prefer, we can put you in contact with professionals who can organize everything for you before you arrive.

Most importantly, the Destination Expert remains available once the student has arrived. We are only a phone call away from the student or their parents for any extra questions or in case of emergency.

Included in the City Student option: “A Welcome Visit”: half a day spent exploring the city with our Destination Expert. The itinerary is established according to your preferences.

If you are considering a destination which is not yet listed on our website, please get in touch with us as we have contacts in many countries, and new destinations are being added regularly.

Marieke, your Destination Expert

After four years spent in South Korea between 2013 and 2017, I am moving back to the land of the morning calm with my family starting in January 2020. Living between Seoul and Geoje island off the coast of Busan, it would be my pleasure to share with you my tips to take advantage of the wide range of experiences that Korea has to offer: hikes in the Seoraksan park, shopping in the trendiest districts of Seoul, silent retreat in a buddhist temple, downhill skiing in one of the dozen of ski resort of the country, discovery of local food, strolls in local markets, etc. Whether you prefer cities or the countryside, sport or relaxation, whether you are traveling alone or with your family, Korea is a very safe country that is still off the major tourist paths and that will surely fit your expectations.

Marieke speaks french and english.

Lucie, your Destination Expert

Destination Expert Lucie grew up between Latin America and France, studied architecture in Paris and lived in Japan. But it’s San Francisco that she has been calling home for the past few years. Architectural gem, tech hub and sanctuary of the hippie movement, San Francisco is a very international city. Which is reflected on the wide variety and quality of its restaurants. Are any other reasons to visit San Francisco really needed?! The city is also a great starting point for a roadtrip in California. Lucie loves finding hidden gems around the city and sharing them, so don’t wait any longer, get in touch!

After several expatriations in Europe and the United States, I settled in Tokyo where I live since early 2019 with my family. Visiting Japan is making a trip to the heart of a unique culture so far removed from our Western landmarks. Japan is a beautiful country full of contrasts. Between tradition and hyper modernity, urban megacity and nature breathtaking, culture and sports of all types, you will discover a country with innumerable facets, a welcoming and captivating people.

Julie, your Destination Expert

After travelling the world for a long years, it was in Polynesia that my family and me, decided to leave our bags, four years ago.
I am always searching for new adventures. I’m passionate about travel, encounters and new discoveries, and it was here on the island of Tahiti that we found our paradise. If Polynesia is for everyone, synonymous white sand and coconut trees, it also offers so many other things. The warm welcome and kindness of the Polynesians make this place a special place where it is good to recharge. Lovers of hiking, lovers of scuba diving or snorkeling, lovers of culinary discoveries will be seduced.

Looking forward to sharing a moment of this story with you.

Julie speaks French and english.

Anaïs, your Destination Expert

After many trips and expatriations including Australia, Canada, Mexico and Thailand, it is in Cuba that I landed 3 years ago and I fell in love with.

Cuba is one of the few countries where you still feel out of time and completely disconnected (in every meaning!). It is a destination that offers a total change of scenery with the rest of the world and offers an amazing authenticity and contrast through local encounters, colonial architecture and landscapes. It is a country rich in history, which offers a fascinating cultural and religious mix.

Cuba goes beyond American cars, cigars, paradisiacal beaches and a sunny weather 🙂 I would be delighted to share with you the different facets still unknown of this Caribbean heart, full of color and joie de vivre !

Anaïs speaks french, english and spanish
