Hello, Abeda - What to do first really depends on why you are thinking of traveling internationally. Preparing for an educational program vs a vacation/leisure trip can be very different. If you are looking for general travel experiences then I might suggest building an itinerary around activities you enjoy at home such as a sport or a hobby. My husband and I are triathletes and we have been fortunate enough to be able to travel to some very different places to participate in races. We then build an entire vacation around the event to make the most of the trip and the costs. On the other had, my first international trip was to study for a year. So, to be more specific, I would need to know more about why you want to travel.

A great deal depends upon why you are going: vacation, education, work or visiting others. I have taken groups, gone on vacations but not studied or worked. With further information about your purpose, it would be easier to answer your question. Best of luck, Marilyn Balke-Lowry

Hello Abeda, Whether you are planning to study abroad or vacation abroad you should narrow your search down to cost, purpose, and what type of adventure you plan to have. If you are studying abroad here are some tips: 1. Obtain documentation for travel 2. Plane tickets are best purchased three months in advance 3. Notify your bank of your abroad travel 4. Keep update with the weather for the best dress code 5. Look up different housing options (shared apartment, dorm, or host family) 6. Obtain necessary doctor clearance if you have any medical conditions. 7. Be aware of various cultural norms Source: https://www.goabroad.com/articles/study-abroad/study-abroad-101-what-to-know-as-a-first-time-student-abroad
