Every traveler has a regret, something that they wish they had done, or something they wish they hadn’t done, while they were on the road. So, for this week’s discussion, I want to know, what is your biggest travel regret?
For me, it’s not doing a semester abroad while I was in college. Back then, I was more concerned with spending time with my friends than traveling. As I discussed a few weeks ago, I did a short 3.5 week trip to Mexico during college, which was where I caught the travel bug. I loved every minute of the trip, even the required work while we were there. I came back feeling excited about exploring the world more, however, I never took the leap and spent a semester abroad.
As I look back now, at how easy it would have been to spend a few months in Europe, South America, or even Australia, I wish that I had had the courage to take the leap and study abroad. I have no doubt that it would have been an amazing experience.
So, just a quick word to those of you who are still in school: Study abroad!
