Group Travel to Europe: Unexpected Expectations

Throughout the past school year, I couldn't stop thinking about this student group travel trip. Ecstasy, intrigue, curiosity, anxiety—I felt about every emotion possible. Whenever I found myself babbling about educational group travel to friends or dreaming up scenarios in my head about what Paris would be like, I would always try to bring myself back down to earth by keeping my expectations to a minimum.

Four Steps to Making Friends on Student Group Travel

It’s been an incredible first week of student group travel in Europe.

I was feeling a bit isolated, despite the group around me. I was on the outskirts, huddled and drawn into my own thoughts.   Just one of those days, I guess. I happened to glance to my left, and my gaze met a woman with closely cropped hair, wearing sensible but scuffed brown … [Read more...]

What Will Student Group Travel Teach You?

Travel is said to be the richest form of education, so what did this student group travel crew learn during their semester abroad? For starters, learning happens in the classroom and across the map. Here are a few more lessons educational group travel taught us with the help of student bloggers Kandace and Danny. There's a lot more to Paris than romance and tourists. History is full of stories of war and famine, but also great acts of bravery and love. Student group travel to Germany proved to teach plenty of that. Study abroad will also teach you about things that … [Read more...]
