Traveling abroad gives students new views on other countries and expands their thoughts of America.

Going out of the country is a common thing for students to do over spring break or summer.

Over spring break, freshmen Arrington Floyd and sophomores Logan Anderson and Allison Primm traveled out of the country.

Floyd travels once a year out of the country and always experiences new things.

“I get to see and experience new things like different animals and environments. And you get to meet new people. You see how things are done differently, and how different cultures are shown,” Floyd said.

But leaving the country has its difficulties.

“TSA is the biggest hassle, going through security in the airport,” Floyd said.

Anderson traveled to Costa Rica and saw differences in communities.

“The difference between the places I’ve gone and America have been their different food styles whether it was Mexican or seafood to just their way of life, the markets they go to, their street life,” Anderson said.

Another change and challenge of going to other countries is the money exchange.

“The biggest hassle is definitely the money exchange, having different money whether it be dollars or creoles,” Anderson said.

Primm had similar experiences when traveling to Guatemala over break.

“My favorite part about traveling out of the country was being able to experience another culture and make friends with the Guatemalan people,” Primm said.

New experiences show students new things and the opportunities we have in America.

“After going to Guatemala, I learned that you should not take the things you have for granted,” Primm said.

Traveling abroad helps students see how different the world really is.

“I learned from traveling out of the country that not everything in the world is the same, not everybodys living styles are similar compared to ours in the United States,” Anderson said.
