To this day, the biggest regret in college is not having done study abroad.
When I meet someone who hasn’t traveled outside the country and isn’t interested in traveling internationally—I wonder why. Is it the discomfort (the mosquito that bit me in Southeast Asia?) or the fear of the unknown? The inability to speak the language? And perhaps the fear….that it won’t be fun.
Although before every trip, I have this moment as I frantically pack. I think that I would rather stay here. It’s easier. I don’t want to go. But the logical person in me propels me to the airport because after all, I already paid for the ticket.
