(2/?) Alright, alright, alright. I should be clear: this advice may not be suitable if you are looking to go to Aruba for a week for vacation, or something like that, once a year. I do travel for exploration moreso than quick vacation. So my tips are more for mid to long term planning. It will become clearer as I elaborate in these posts. Let's dive in.
1) You can get to travel through other ways as a student other than study abroad. You can do internships and volunteering and you can apply to go to youth conferences. As a student, there are grants and opportunities to do internships abroad. During my time as an undergraduate, students did internships abroad in France and Switzerland thanks to such grants. These are a double win because you get to be in a new country to live but also gain valuable professional experiences. There are programs that allow you to apply even a year after you graduate. I got a grant to do an independently designed program in France and Switzerland the summer of 2013 (I graduated in 2012). Your study abroad/fellowship office should have all this info.
2) Passport privileges are real. It's easier to travel on a European or Canadian passport. But, BUT! You can still do it even if you don't have such a passport. How? For both types of situations, there are fully-funded graduate school programs and leadership/professional development programs abroad such as Erasmus. The World Bank has a few fully funded scholarships for "developing" countries.The American Fulbright is also an international exchange program. Not only do hundreds of Americans go abroad as fulbrighters but many foreign students come to America as fulbrighters as well from their respective countries. You can be strategic. If you get an opportunity within the EU, that study visa or residency permit becomes suitable to travel anywhere within the Schengen area. If you are lucky to get a stipend as part of your scholarship, don't waste it on clothes and shoes. lol. Eat cheap and squirrel away some money for travel.

Reiser du mykje, så veit du jo at det ofte skjer uforutsette ting på tur.
Å ha med seg hjelpemidler som inneheld syntetisk parfyme, kjemikalier og tungmetaller er ikkje aktuelt, me velger heller å omgi oss med 100% reine, potente oljer fra naturens skattkammer.
Då er me sikker på at me får den hjelpen me treng, uten bivirkninger.
Enten det er såre bein, hodepine, mageproblemer, solbrent hud eller søvnproblemer, me er rusta for det meste.
Think Pink 💓
Have you seen beautiful shots and drone recording of pretty pink lakes over Australia? Well I was adamant that they were photoshopped to make them that colour...but I was proven wrong when we visited West Gate Park, just outside Melbourne. A few weeks back this salt lake turned pink, something to do with the salt and bacteria levels 🤷🏻♀️ So many people were there to admire this natural wonder of nature. I mean it was pretty cool to see but a little bit smelly 🙈
Have you ever seen a lake this colour? 💗
Like all trips, the one in London has also ended. What are our comments? We have not yet understood whether we like London or not, as there are almost always positive and negative things.
Let's start with positive things:
* Attractions for everyone, for children like the museum of transport, for art lovers like the National Gallery or for those who love architecture like the Cathedral of San Paolo
* Parks and green areas, there are many, which for children are often salvation. When Sophy couldn't take it anymore we would throw ourselves into a park and leave it free to run and play, and it's not so unusual to see even some squirrels
* Public Transports, we tried all of them, from the famous red buses to the metro and even the boat, a bit expensive but very frequent and comfortable
And now the negative ones:
* too many stairs and few lifts very useful if you move with the stroller, there are few metro stations that have the elevator and even on the street there are often steps
* Food, I state that we love ethnic food, but it's not so suitable for a child, so we would have appreciated a little more availability of restaurants with local cuisine, on Sunday evening we found ourselves forced to eat at the hotel because they were all closed and those few opened were ethnic or not family-friendly
* Climate, well, I don't think I have to dwell too much about it, we all know that the weather in London is not like the Caribbean, so we suggest you visit it in the slightly warmer months, March is still very cold and rainy

Don’t you notice, in European and Arab countries most of neighborhoods have doors or walls like this? ⠀
☛ TIP ☚ 📍. Porta Ticinese is just right next to Colonne di San Lorenzo. It’s an area of Milan for young and hip. On this long lane where the trams 🚋 pass are cult and trendy stores and all sorts of restaurants also lined up here. Definitely an all-in-one for a tourist! ⠀

This is 33! 🎉🎉🎉🎉 Grandma (teacher of life-skills) would say I was her little rebel. She would have so much words of wisdom for me and use to tell me all the time on the phone. It is funny, as much as I didn’t seem i was responsible I had taken her words of wisdom along the road and journey with me. Things I will never forget.
Age should never determine your drive
Always celebrate you before anyone else does
Live in the moment and don’t worry about tomorrow as it hasn’t presented itself to me yet. 😂
Always keep on living and continue to laugh!
Now 10 years on since, I can admit that I had a lot some rebel tendencies and yes I am still applying the words within.
