What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
This study abroad experience was worth while. Traveling to India was such an amazing experience. I learned so much about a different culture and how people are living differently than I am. Going to the different businesses was also a good experience. I became more independent by traveling abroad, and it taught me more about myself. I would recommend this trip to anyone!

I did not think that I was going to want to shop as much as I did. Bring extra money in case you find something interesting that you are going to want to take home.
Language acquisition improvement?
On this trip I learned a few words in Hindi. Almost everything else was done in English.
