When you can't travel, where do you go? Well, we go straight to our bookshelves. ➡️📚
During this pandemic, many of us have turned to books for an escape from the current reality or to take a deep look into our current reality. Whichever your choice, why not add a dash of study abroad inspiration? We've been reading articles like this one that talks about how “It is not natural for us to be this sedentary. Travel is in our genes." So let's keep future focused on our next adventure. 😉
Try out the best books to read before study abroad (if you're looking for an escape) and books to boost your intercultural competency from diverse global perspectives (if you're looking to expand your view). If that isn't enough, we're also geeking out about this website that matches you with books set in a location of your choice. 🗺️ We can't think of a better way to kick-start planning your eventual adventures abroad with a story set right where you want to go.
School already got your reading list packed? These short binge-worthy blogs and stories (all written by IES Abroad alumni!) are a great place to start!
