With the internet making the world smaller everyday, traveling is becoming more and more popular. Especially young people travel more than their parents have ever done. While some 20 years ago we use to depend on travel agencies and atlas´s to have an idea of where we could go to, nowadays with a little research on google and some mouse clicks you can find yourself on an airplane to the other end of the ocean before you know it. Because while the world has gotten smaller, our knowledge has gotten richer.
New Horizons, New Knowledge
The best reason why one should travel abroad is exactly this; to enhance your knowledge. Getting in touch with new cultures will change your view of the world. You will learn about new rhythms and see instruments that make sounds you have never heard before. See arts and designs that will inspire your life. By getting to know a new language you will learn to express emotions of which you did not know they had a name. Getting exited? Maybe studying for your degree abroad would be a great choice for you. On the School Creative Centre website you can find multiple programs that can help you with your choice.
Consider Climate and Safety
While traveling or studying abroad and getting to know new people can be very exiting, there are a few things you need to consider before packing your bag and jumping into an airplane. Make sure that the climate is one that you find comfortable. Nothing is a bigger waste then staying indoors all the time because the weather is either too hot or too could for your liking. And most of all, stay safe. Although the majority of the people you will meet will be extremely friendly and helpful, leave high risk areas to the professionals. After all traveling is all about fun!
