How Studying Abroad Changed My Life

“Travel is little beds and cramped bathrooms. It’s old television sets and slow Internet connections. Travel is extraordinary conversations with ordinary people. It’s waiters, gas station attendants, and housekeepers becoming the most interesting people in the world. It’s churches that are compelling enough to enter. It’s McDonald’s being a luxury.

The Real Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants

No one understands “going out with a bang” better than five wanderlust college kids who spent the last year of their lives traveling the world.
