Study Abroad

WorldOne of the amazing things about college is all the opportunity you have to do something new.  Most of the time we think “new career” or “new major”.  Occasionally we think 6th Year Senior.  But one of the best things about college is that it gives you a chance to see the world while learning.  As you may have guessed, I’m talking about Study Abroad programs.   While I never took advantage of a study abroad program, we did have a foreign exchange student from Germany stay with us for a year.

I’ve been thinking about this since the other day when I saw a statistic that said the average person has only visited 17 cities.  That number seems shockingly small.  But whether it’s true or not, it got me thinking – how many cities have I lived in?  And how many more cities will I live in at some point down the road?

As I said, I never took advantage of the Study Abroad programs when I was in college.  But perhaps I should have. So if you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
