We're all about saving money at ILP (International Language Programs) because that means more money doing the things you really want to do (traveling right!?).
I hope you’re planning on taking tons of pictures of your semester abroad and will be keeping a journal (or maybe a blog) but have you thought about using your Book of Mormon to help you remember your adventures. It sounds weird, but trust me.
We love Lithuania. I mean it, we LOVE this country. Who wouldn’t be happy in a country where a cup of hot chocolate is literally melted chocolate? Yum. If there wasn’t more to love, as it turns out, Kaunus and Vilnius have some of the coolest cafes around.
Want to travel the world but worried what you will eat? I mean, what does breakfast look like in China? Do Russians really eat beet soup? Don't worry. Being a little afraid of the food in foreign countries is all part of the experience.
When thinking of beaches we usually think of tropical destinations like Mexico or Hawaii, but did you know some of the most beautiful beaches (EVER!) can be found in Europe?
Not everyone who travels understands and speaks the local language of the country they're visiting. That can make it difficult to communicate even your simplest needs and wants. Charades work well and so does pulling out a pocket size phrase book, but what if you are in a hurry and need an answer fast?
I know, I know...we're constantly adding new places to your "must visit" list in China, but that's because there's SO many amazing places there. Xiamen is one of em!
If you are dreaming of travel, trust us; you are going to want to keep a bucket list journal and even have ways to do it without writing a thing (it’s real, we promise!) We’ve got all the tips you need to make a notebook full of all the future adventures you’ve yet to take.
