While internships abroad are the perfect opportunities to define and develop your career, they are also excellent opportunities for you to travel the world. It’s important to be focused on your internship, but taking a chill pill now and then won’t hurt anyone. Take the chance to get to know new people, make new friends, and travel the country. Some would say that it would be rude if you don’t travel while on your internship. While you will be busy most of the time, your days off are yours and you can use them wisely to travel. The best way to travel the host country is with friends that you’ve just met while interring. By traveling while interring, you are experiencing the host country at its fullest by meeting its people, culture, cuisines, and more.
