I enjoyed the daily trips we took in my literary course. It was amazing to read about these locations rich in culture then less than an hour later go visit that place and compare the representation in literature to the actual place.

I loved getting to push myself outside of my comfort zone every single day. Whether it was in the classroom, talking with locals, or being truly independent for the first time, I always felt like something great was about to happen. I can't describe the feeling of accomplishment and growth at the end of my trip- this was hands-down the best decision I've ever made.

Being able to travel to other countries, either on the excursions or not, were the most rewarding experiences. Each country has a different culture, and being able to see so many different cultures in such a short time/distance was remarkable.
