In today’s post, I’m going to give you 15 things to think about before going abroad.
. . .
- Don’t be afraid of going abroad!
- Don’t think about what you’ll be leaving behind, think about what you’ll get to experience. (you will learn and gain much more than you will be leaving behind)
- There’s a big chance that the climate will be different (do some research before packing). This will make your experience abroad much more enjoyable.
- Don’t think about what it’s going to be like too much. Let yourself be surprised by things. It will make your experience much more enjoyable, and you will be more open-minded, which will help you learn even more.
- Enjoy the journey there, at least as much as being in the country because you might even learn something on the trip there (in the airport or in the bus/plane).
- Learn some important words/phrases in the local language. Not everyone will speak your language, and you might want to be able to speak to people instead of always acting things out.
Charades is fun at the beginning of your trip, but later on you will want to be able to say something, so just learn a few things before you leave (this also makes it easier to learn more while in the country).
- Don’t be afraid to speak the local language (it will be one of your most valuable memories, especially if you make a funny mistakes).
- A foreign language is an amazing assets to have to show future employers. (every mistakes you make while learning will be worth it).
- Culture shock is real (but not scary). It just means that you are aware of your new surroundings and you are adjusting. During the culture shock phase, you can learn a lot about yourself and the country.
- Don’t plan too much (just go out and explore anything and everything).
- Don’t be too much of a tourist (speak to locals, ask them about fun things they like to do).
- Don’t take too many pictures (unless you’re a travel photographer). Try to live in the moment and capture the important things.
- Try to overcome jet-lag as soon as possible. This will make your trip (long or short) much more enjoyable.
- Stay connected with friends and family back home (talk to them at least once a week). It will make culture shock less painful, and you will be able to tell them the exciting things that you experience the day of, instead of waiting until you get back (but save some stories to tell them about in person).
- And, lastly, answer this question: WHY are you going abroad?

I hope this post encourages you to travel abroad & take advantage of your next adventure abroad!
