I was afraid to study abroad before this trip. I wasn't sure what being away from home for so long would be like and because I didn't know what to expect. I would tell any future students to not let travel anxiety get the best of them. Pushing through my fears was the best decision I made.

Getting to connect with the literature we were reading in a physical sense was really great. We read several novels, poems, and a short story, then were able to visit the places described in the literature; it was really rewarding, and I was able to connect with the literature on a deeper level than I would have been able to in a regular classroom.

I really enjoyed reading the required novels and then actually going to the places they were written or inspired by.
