One of the reasons I love traveling so much is that I meet different kinds of people while abroad. Obviously the people I meet in other countries are different than those from home but even my fellow travelers are a special kind of person. I genuinely believe that people that are interested in seeing other parts of the world tend to be more down to earth than those only interested in their own backyard. There's nothing wrong with never leaving home, but since I've been on my trip I've really connected with my fellow students. They are unlike many of the people I've run into back at school and I think it's because they're less self-involved and want to see what else is out there. There is more to life than the bubble.
