I have many good travel memories, but one of my favorites is visiting Lombok, Indonesia. We climbed a volcano, camped under the stars, explored the beaches, dined with the locals, and met many wonderful people.
Making an effort to learn some of the local language will give you more independence and opportunities to explore and engage with the culture. Learning a language can be tough, but it will also help you better relate to your students!
