It’s true that traveling challenges us with teachable moments, and it’s our duty to understand what the are trying to show us in the moment. Many people travel to see the sights, but there is so much depth to traveling that can be overlooked. Just like any new experience in life - travel has its ups and downs but that’s part of the experience as a whole.
If you have dreamed about stepping outside of your hometown, or college town, then there’s no better time to explore your options. Can you fully appreciate your life at college without having stepped off campus to try a new experience somewhere else? Do you think that you’d regret not going abroad once you find that stable job and career after you graduate?
