Marc’s Answer

Hey Julia,
Travel is such a great way to experience new cultures, meet new people and expand your horizons. I love traveling to Europe...especially France and Italy. However, not everyone has a budget for international travel. There are great options in the US...and even in the northeast within a couple of hours of Pittsfield. You can visit Montreal and Quebec and experience a different country just hours from home. You can also visit the countryside of Vermont and New Hampshire. New York City and Boston are close by and offer lots of culture and unique experiences. Have fun and be safe!

Katie’s Answer

As a student, I felt the best way to get travel experience was by studying abroad. My college offered some great programs and I ended up studying abroad in Italy for a semester. That opportunity spurred my interest in travel and allowed me to visit multiple countries. I love reading Rick Steve's page to get travel ideas and even mock itineraries. If going abroad for travel right now seems unachievable, start small and start traveling to nearby cities/states.

Nicholas’s Answer

Mexico is close and cheap. Highly recommended! I personally studied abroad in Brazil and it was a great choice. Also very cheap and a totally different culture. Google "study abroad programs in _____" and fill in whatever country you're interested in. Get out there Julia, the world is waiting.

Andra’s Answer

Travel to areas you are passionate about, you might have seen a cool picture you remember, heard of a nice area; or in general, are curious about someplace on earth. Follow your intuition, do a lot of research before traveling reading websites from our own state government's advice to our embassies located overseas, try to create a general plan of what you would like to see and accomplish while there.

It is always helpful to travel with friends, so make sure you are well connected if possible with those you travel with, or anyone you might meet when arriving in a new location.

Lastly, local hotels usually will have great tour advice for any city you visit, and tour maps that you can use to help you spot out fun activities along your day.

Make the most of your time and enjoy it.

Gloria’s Answer

Hi Julia,

I have a few requirements for when I travel that have changed over my life. Right now, I like to visit historical places, whether it is US or other countries. I live in a very young country, so I am always fascinated by countries with much longer histories. I also like to learn about new cultures, what is the same as the US and what is not. I learned while I was traveling that English is a language of many countries, and yet it can be challenging to communicate. I am also excited about nature, so I like to go hiking in different parks around the world.

Kelsey’s Answer

Hello! In my opinion, traveling to different countries and experiencing different cultures and sights is the most amazing thing ! :) I started to really get into traveling a few years ago; so far I have been to a bunch of countries in the carribean, Mexico, Canada, and most recently the Maldives! I think it all depends on what you want out of the experience. I went to the Maldives because I absolutely love the beach, and the Maldives is one of the most beautiful, exotic looking islands with beaches that there is! I think if you have a specific thing you are interested in, try googling what countries you'll be able to get that experience in :)

Laura’s Answer

Hi Julia,

Unfortunately I did not have an opportunity to study abroad when I was in college; however I was required to have some international experience prior to starting my graduate degree. After college I backpacked (more like "suitcase-d") across Europe and it was one of the most amazing times. I travelled with my best friends and stayed mostly in hostiles or my friend's families homes. We went to England, Holland, Italy, Austria, Czech Republic, and Spain. One of the most memorable trips in my lifetime.

One book in particular that was super helpful was Rick Steve's travel guides, but you can find so much more additional information on-line for many budget friendly places. and reviews.

These past few years, we mostly travel to Aruba or the Carribean. As most of us have not traveled in quite sometime, I am so looking forward to planning our next trip.

Enjoy your travels!

Best,
Laura
