1. One of the best parts about studying abroad? Getting to travel to other cities and countries! Here are my top travel tips:

Google Maps. Seriously, I can’t emphasize enough how many times Google Maps saved my little lost self while traveling. With Google Maps you can download a location onto your phone and it uses your location services to help you get around without using any cellular data! Besides downloading all your locations on Google Maps, it’s also a good idea to pack light, because, no matter how little money you plan on spending, you’re probably going to buy a few too many souvenirs and you’ll be extremely happy for that little extra room in your bag. Last but not least, never forget the wonders of a small, compact umbrella. You never want to find yourself trapped inside because of the rain. An umbrella is a fabulous way to continue your travels and experience all you want to in a new city. The Weather Channel can’t be right every time, folks. So don’t forget your rain gear, no matter how many sunny days are promised. Always bring an umbrella, always pack light, and always download Google Maps.

2. If you had 60 seconds to convince a friend that they should study abroad, what would you say?

Studying abroad will be one of the best experiences of your life. It’s probably the only time where you’ll be able to live with other students, earn college credit, and travel to a new country every single weekend. If you love trying new foods, learning about new places, even if you just love sitting in a coffee shop people watching, all of these things are an option with studying abroad. It’s an experience that’ll teach you so many new things about yourself and the world around you. You’ll gain valuable experience through your travels, like how to figure out a metro system or how to communicate with those around you even if you don’t speak the same language. Studying abroad will teach you so much about yourself and other people around the world. You’ll meet new people, you’ll try different drinks, foods, and even clothes. You will get to experience a season in another country and you’ll get to celebrate holidays in an entirely new way. You’ll even get to experience new holidays that you didn’t know existed. Studying abroad introduces you to a new culture and an entirely new world, and you can do all of this while receiving college credit! I can’t tell you enough how this experience has affected my life; I would do it again in a heartbeat. Why not give it a try?
