From Girl to Girl: Tips for Solo Female Travelers

By |September 21st, 2017|Categories: Work Abroad|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

The most important lesson I’ve learned during my travels is understanding that to travel alone doesn’t mean in solitude. It requires a lot of bravery and strength to travel alone, to learn how to be by yourself, and why this is a great virtue that only a few people conquer. But once you do it, [...]

When It Comes To Traveling Abroad, Be a Way Maker

By |August 11th, 2017|Categories: Summer Programs, Volunteer Abroad|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

A past boss once said to me, “There are two types of people in this world, way makers and excuse makers- which one are you?”  At the time I laughed and didn't think much about it. Then one day I couldn’t stop thinking about the comment and thought deeply to myself, “Which one am I?” The [...]

Tutoring English in Germany: Ben’s Story

By |June 21st, 2017|Categories: Tutor English|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

It is one thing seeing pictures of a city on the internet or on TV. It is another thing actually visiting the city in person. Growing up, traveling had always been a hot passion for me. Due to limited resources and lack of proper education, I did not pursue this passion of mine until I [...]

Teaching Abroad in South Korea: From Dream to Reality

By |June 14th, 2017|Categories: Paid Teaching|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

I opened my browser and typed the words “teaching abroad in South Korea." This was something I have always fantasized about doing, but never had the courage to take that dream further. For a long time, I dreamt to do something like live and work in a different country, but was also content at the time with living [...]

In the End, It’s All About the People: Internship in Malta

By |April 21st, 2017|Categories: Work Abroad|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

I didn’t know what to expect from Malta and this experience, but because of the people I met, it now means more to me than I ever would have thought... I had just spent 6 years in universities earning my Master’s degree in nutrition, completing a demanding dietetic internship, studying and (thank God!) passing my certification [...]

Over the past two months, I have had my fair share of solo travel around Europe. Throughout my trips, I have created a list of pros and cons of taking a trip alone. Some of these may seem obvious, but I have found all of them to be incredibly true (and many other solo travelers I [...]

Six Weeks in Europe: When Things Go Wrong, Everything Can Go Right

By |March 15th, 2017|Categories: Volunteer Teach|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

I have to admit, before leaving to spend six weeks in Europe last summer I was nervous- not necessarily about my safety, the long flight, or the volunteer teaching program I was doing in Italy. I was nervous that I was going to sabotage my own trip by trying to control everything. That may seem [...]

The famous Italian filmmaker, Federico Fellini, one said that "a different language is a different vision of life".  Over a year ago I woke up with a restless sensation that was burning inside of me. I felt inpatient to learn Italian, a fourth language for me (after Spanish, my mother language, English and Hebrew).  I [...]

“A lot of things in your life will be a jumbled mess from here on out and things you thought would happen will go completely opposite at times, and you’ll start to feel like you’re losing it. But be encouraged and know that none of this world is how we think it should or could [...]
