If you have the chance to travel as a teenager, just go! From the time you set foot off the airplane and into a new country, your brain kicks into survival mode and there is no time to be timid. You’re away from home, family, friends and everything that’s familiar and safe. Suddenly, you’re forced to ask questions, have conversations with strangers and problem solve for the sake of getting from point A to point B. You face challenges and make mistakes, but from these experiences memories are reaped, friendships are forged and life lessons are learned. You’ll find yourself at the top of a mountain that you spent days trekking, overlooking a view with new friends who made the challenging trip with you and anxiety is forgotten, replaced with strength and a feeling that you can do anything.
