Returning Home and Back Again - My Failed Attempt to Stay in Texas

Returning Home and Back Again: Take Two on Traveling Abroad

By: Amanda Martin

 

I can honestly say that making the decision to move abroad and teach was the best choice I have ever made in my life. I am a completely different person now than I was before I got on that plane to head for China that first year. It has made me a better person and a better citizen of the world. I have experienced so many things, seen so many beautiful places, and questioned many things along the way.

 By: Tom Buskey


In today’s world, social media has a strong presence. People are constantly bombarded with news, videos, and opinions of other people. So many times I have seen on social media outlets the benefits of solo traveling and the amazing experience you will receive. Although this may be true, I am here to tell you that moving abroad and traveling around the world is not only for single people and that the couples can do it too!

Many believe that moving/traveling abroad will be this soul searching experience and you will be able to get in touch with your inner self and find out your true calling in life. This may be the case, but you can also achieve those same goals with your partner (or friend) by your side. Some may say that traveling alone will give you a sense of achievement and independence, but I really do believe that I was able to accomplish those goals even with my partner by my side.

Emotional Stages of Moving Abroad

By: Lauren Manderfeld

It is no joke that making any sort of move is nerve-racking, especially if you are moving into a completely new culture and where they don’t speak the same language. I am here to point out some of the emotional highs and lows in your first year of being abroad.

Before you move to a new place you are typically full of excitement and curiosity. You wonder what your life might be like in this new place, about the people you are going to meet, the job your going to get, where you are going to live, and so much more. Its hard to feel anything except excitement when you have so many possibilities, and you can create your life however you want!
