This summer I will have the amazing chance to study abroad. I will be traveling to Athens,Greece! This will be my first time study abroad, but my friends that have had the chance to go have given me some advice. And I want to share this advice with you if you are going to be traveling abroad soon.
Be sure to save money before the trip.
Not only will you be paying for the trip, but also paying for the things you would like to buy when you are there.
Be sure to have your passport up to date.
Getting a passport can be a difficult thing, so be sure that you have everything you need together. Also, if this is your first time traveling like me, be sure to take care of everything in a timely manner. Just in case there are some issues in the process.
Packing what you need.
You only need to pack what you need and nothing more. Depending on where you are going, you don't know how long you will have to carry your stuff. So plan ahead, look at the packing list provided and go from there.
Depending on where you go, you will most likely have to pay more for your phone plan because of long distance. So plan ahead with that. I suggest using apps like GroupMe, so you can talk more freely.
Double check EVERYTHING.
I know you are excited for your trip, but you need to make sure everything is in order.
