Why YOU Should Study Abroad!

There are so many reasons why you should study abroad! For starters, you’re going to be in another country and that’s awesome! Second, you’re going to be able to immerse yourself in that country and language and you’ll get to see what living in another country is like! 1,207 more words

Many years after my own exchange experience, I enjoy touching base on the value of these programs. The world needs exchange students more now than ever, since relationships are built between people over a cup of coffee, a meal, and a respect for each other's culture. Here's a blog by Le Petit Traveler about why YOU should be an exchange student (this can apply to your children if you are a parent). This is but one student's experience. I am not necessarily endorsing this university, but any program that encourages students to travel abroad and provides the assistance for them to do so safely, whether it's with a college professor who travels with you or you travel to a family who hosts you. Personally, I believe that living with another family (versus living in a dorm with other students from your home country) is a more immersive and challenging experience. The farther you go out of your comfort zone, and the more challenges you face, the more you grow as a person. Bon voyage, and enjoy!

What have I done!?!?!?!?

Do you ever just find yourself seriously regretting something?  To the point where you wish you could go back in time and change your actions?  But you feel obliged to stay with what you’ve done. 246 more words

Tired, But Happy

The doors slide open and I roll my suitcases forward, my stomach in knots.

Somewhere between Eugene and Sofia…honestly, I forget when I wrote this first part

By the time you read this, I will be in Bulgaria. I’ll have gotten to my new home, connected to the internet, wrapped up my final thoughts on this first leg of my exchange, and clicked ‘Publish’. 1,268 more words

Goodbye...Until July 11, 2018

As a general rule, I like trying new things. I like visiting new places, eating new foods, and going on new adventures. Over the past week, however, I have had a new experience which I found I do not like at all: Saying goodbyes. 505 more words
