I recently stumbled upon an article where a 30-year-old man wrote some advice for his 20-year-old self. Within the article, he continuously stressed how important it is for his younger self to travel. I thought back to when I was debating whether or not studying abroad was something I would be able to do in my college career and I realized how close I was to dismissing the opportunity.
In this vlog, I talk about why studying abroad is such an awesome experience and everyone should do it! I also show some clips from my trips to the most northern parts of Thailand, Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai, where I got to play with elephants, learn to cook, make some pottery and float my very own lantern!
