Students, if you have the opportunity to do so, travel NOW. Yes, you read that right. There is no use to delay it. If you have the opportunity to study abroad, take it. There is something about being in a different country and being out of your comfort zone that transforms you into a different person; more mature, stronger, more independent.
When a person reaches college, the school work will be too much to handle sometimes that the opportunity to travel is lessened and once a person graduates from college and steps into the real world, there are just too many things to take care of such as getting a job, finding a place, taking care of bills, etc that it might be too overwhelming of a task to just plan a vacation abroad.
The world’s demands for globally minded, independent and well traveled people are increasing. It will be a worthwhile experience to explore the world one country at a time.
