Senior year of college, my two best friends decided to trade a semester at SUNY Geneseo for a semester abroad in Florence, Italy. I hadn’t ever traveled internationally and didn’t actually have too much of a desire to leave behind Mia’s Pizza Shop, The Idle, Vital or Wegmans! Life without Wegmans is a life I didn’t really care to know. I opted to join my friends and have been hooked ever since.
Where Do You Want To Go?
If you are anything like me, you may have taken a vacation or trip somewhere and immediately wanted to begin planning your next adventure upon return. After I got back from Italy, I decided I wanted to continue traveling before beginning the job application process. I found the Lonely Planet Thorn Tree Community, which houses various communities on travel, experiences, and any topic that one might want to discuss surrounding travel. Through the community posts and discussions, I was able to decide where I wanted to go, what I was interested in seeing, the most effective and affordable ways of traveling between cities, cultural information and different tips that I wouldn’t have known or figured out until getting to my final destination.
Lets Be Real- Someone Needs To Pay For These Trips!!
Okay, I get it. So unless you’re T-Swift or Mr. World Wide, you’re probably not going to be bouncing around to foreign countries all the time, I mean most of us do need to work after all, but this site is also great if you want to read and learn about different countries and cultures. Even if you may not be able to take an exotic trip for another 3-5 year, there is no harm in planning! Plus, having a destination in mind can be motivating and help you prioritize better.
