Agency Experience: Neutral
Although I reported on time ( 1 January ) that I would choose the offer that suits me and got a discount on the program , I received an offer that had remained vacant at the end , and I did not save , because the price of air tickets soared in the meantime , and also visa prices rose . For the guys from the agency can say that OK :) but the experience was neutral.

Location Experience: Neutral
Lake Placid is located in the north of the state of New York in the middle of Adirodack nature park where there is still a million small lakes like Lake Placid and Mirror Lake-a. The closest Saranac Lake, and from major cities Plattsburgh is an hour's drive. Lake Placid is a very bad connected by bus lines, so it is best to find someone with a car who goes often to Plattsburg or Albany, where there are shopping centers and amusement parks. Or course, rented car. It has about 2500 inhabitants. In Lake Placid is all concentrated on Mirror Lake in along Main Street's restaurants, pubs, clubs, shops, station, hotels ... The only market out of the lake, about 20-30 min walk or 5-10 min city bus, which is free and which runs around the lake and to the supermarket several times a day. Nightlife is not so bad for such a small place on Wednesdays at the bowling alley is organized bowling evening, Thursday at Roomers Lady's night or pay for one drink another gratis, Fridays Balkan evening in the Arena, Saturday Roomers, but there are good pubs like the Wise guys-a i-Cottage with rock music and good food ... However, a better nightlife in Plattsburg and other major cities.
