Confessions of a Study Abroad Student

Sitting in an American classroom with a French textbook can only do so much.  Sure, it provides the base to succeed once abroad, but touching down on French soil is an entirely different experience.  I worked in Toulouse, France last summer and love learning to travel deeper, but have never experienced a traditional study abroad… Continue reading Confessions of a Study Abroad Student

Juliana Dever on Travel, Fear and Facing the Unknown

Ruby red slippers and the idea of traveling to a foreign land like Oz enchanted Juliana Dever as a child.  Dorothy’s character wasn’t a complete stranger; Dever too grew up in the Midwest, in St. Louis.  But Dever’s story doesn’t end like Dorothy’s, that of settling for “no place like home.”  Dever reveled in the… Continue reading Juliana Dever on Travel, Fear and Facing the Unknown

How History Enhances Your Travel Experience

Strolling along the Seine and savoring a croissant buttered with Nutella in Paris is a dream for many, but Diana Stegall made her hope of living in Paris a reality.  Her love of France budded during her study abroad experience in 2009 as a “googly-eyed” college girl with dreams of the Eiffel Tower in her… Continue reading How History Enhances Your Travel Experience
