One afternoon in my Travel Writing class, we were reading page after page of quotes about traveling, and one really captured my attention:
“In the best travel, disconnection is a necessity. Concentrate on where you are; do no back-home business; take no assignments; remain incommunicado; be scarce. It is a good thing that people don’t know where you are or how to find you. Keep in mind the country you are in. That’s the theory.”
With the 2012 Olympics in London upon us, global competition is on our minds. The guts! The glory! The…awesome course selection and weekend excursions??
YES! Abroad101 is joining the fun with our own Global Gold Challenge, a head-to-head competition of countries competing for study abroad fame. For an entire week during the Olympics (July 27 – August 3) we’ll be running a poll on our asking YOU to get on board with whichever nation you think will come out of the Olympics with the most medals overall.
