1: When you’re still young and you don’t have too many serious commitments, its important to take your opportunities when you can.
2: Broaden your horizons. Try new food, learn a different language and explore other cultures. You will carry these experiences with you for the rest of your life.
3: Meet new people. You never know who you could encounter along the way, which makes it that much more exciting. Take the chance and expand your social and networking circles.
4: Become independant. There is nothing quite like travelling to teach you independance beacause you’re away from home, out of your comfort zone and having to fend for yourself.
5: Live a little. Explore, have fun and enjoy it. It’s important not to take yourself too seriously but rather to enjoy the experience and learn from it.
