The best part about traveling comes with experiencing new places with a fun group of people because all of us have an opportunity to learn so much from each other.
Our immersion programs are an intensive, authentic look into another country, language and culture which make it extra important for students of all ages to go into their trip abroad with an open mind and ready to take on each activity. However, this collective challenge of jumping into an unknown place gives each student an amazing opportunity to embrace new experiences.
When you first arrive in a new country, you may initially feel overwhelmed being in a new environment. When I first arrived in Lima, I did not know what to expect, but I knew that I was not alone. EdOdyssey’s one month orientation program served as an amazing starting point to get adjusted to the city, gain more knowledge about Peru, and improve my level of Spanish.
One of my most memorable experiences in Peru was volunteering in the greater Lima area in Pamplona Alta. Volunteering while abroad offers the chance to see and experience parts of the country that you are in that you may not encounter on a day to day basis.
