Embrace the culture surrounding you. Things will be different than you're used to; that's the beauty of it. Do not go on this trip if you aren't looking to challenge your personal comforts.

I learned how to get my foot in the door when it comes to working in sports internationally. I also learned about a different culture and how sports differ around the world!
