I gained friends and experiences that will always be a part of me. Every bit was worthwhile McKenzie F - Trinity University View Entire Review
I found that I can do this traveling abroad thing all by myself! It was so amazing to find that independence again! I also loved that I found the confidence to just go out and do things that I had never done and not once did I ever doubt myself. This trip was absolutely worthwhile and I think about going back everyday. Meagan Moulton - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned to be more independent, more careful with budgets, how to get used to a new environment faster, how to travel more efficiently, gained more recipes, met people from all over the world and made many international friends. A student - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

It was extremely worthwile! I learned that I am more independent than I ever thought before. The thought of traveling alone isn't as scary now as it was before.
