Have you thought about studying abroad? Can you imagine what an adventure it would be to live in another country for a year or more? Everything would be new. Many things would be totally different from what you are accustomed to. You'd be out of your "comfort zone." You'd be taking a giant leap towards being a citizen of the world. Just imagine yourself abroad. Where would YOU want to go?
When I was a student in California I wanted to go to Mexico and Spain. I was lucky. I got to go to both. Where would YOU go if you could go next year? What country would you like to really get to know?
And while you're there you'll want to visit other countries. You'll want to travel around. I don't know about you but I still have a lot of countries on my "bucket list".
In 2009-2010, according to the Institute of International Education, the top 10 countries which hosted U.S. students were: United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, France, China, Australia, Germany, Mexico, Ireland and Costa Rica. Yeah Spain! Some day I'd love to go to all those countries. Which one would you choose to stay in for a year?
