That sounds so fun to me. I wish I had not been so pressured by other people to focus on certain things in college, and had pursued my own interests more. I'm sure you've had tons of fun traveling.I studied linguistics and French literature as an undergraduate and French language and literature as a grad student. I'm a language teacher (usually French, but I've done elementary Japanese and Latin and a seven-year stint of EFL). I've also traveled a fair amount outside my home country (US), to Canada, Latin America, Western Europe, the Arabian Peninsula, and Japan.
Being able to read French and Russian literature without translation would be like a dream to me. Maybe in my next lifetime.
