Over the years I have been pretty relentless about striking up the conversation about the importance of studying abroad. Many times students, friends, colleagues, and people involved in these conversations ask me about the cost. To be frank, I am not the richest person in the world when it comes to finances. More, I’ve always thought of cost last when it comes to a meaningful trip. Whether it has been Spain, the Philippines, South Korea, Brazil, China, Japan, France, Canada, or Germany, I’ve budgeted out months ahead of time, but always maintained the notion that the experience was more important than the cost.
Because I know times are tough and people want to travel to places and do it for an affordable price I recommend checking out the website fundmytravel: https://www.fundmytravel.com/how-it-works
