Hey, hey Weihai volunteers! You may be pretty far north but that doesn’t mean you don’t have some pretty rad vacation spots nearby.
Once you get to Europe, travel within Europe and places to stay can be really affordable ( we must be doing something wrong, America!). But, there are some countries that are much cheaper than others. If you're on a budget, you have to be really strategic about where you decide to travel to.
Just when you think you can't love Thailand more you see discover Ao Nang Beach( SO many heart eyes right now!). You will find tons to do in Ao Nang: Snorkeling, Thai massages, awesome hostels, rock climbing, kayaking and more!
I'm not sure it can get much better than a warm day on the beach in the Dominican Republic! When you volunteer abroad for a semester with International Language Programs (ILP) you'll have plenty of of time to travel and see different, gorgeous beaches. Consider making Catalina Island one of the places you visit!
When you think about exploring Europe, which country first comes to mind? Not Poland? It should be. This country is incredible (hello castles!) and totally underestimated.
When you think of Beijing, China you probably think of The Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and The Great Wall of China right? All of those places are amazing, but we've got some hidden spots for you too.
