I really want to visit Bali right now!

If you could live in any other city in the world, what would it be and why?
Such a hard question! I don't know if I ever want to settle down in one city for too long, but I could see myself spending some time living in Southern Thailand, New Zealand, Bali, Greece.... I hope I get a job that lets me float around the world!

I speak Japanese and I'm hoping to add more to the list!

What advice do you have for study abroad students?

 I would say to go into it with a really open mind. Don't be afraid to let your time abroad change the way to think, see the world, and live. And take lots of pictures so you can always hold onto those memories!
