Every day, people use the IESabroad hashtag (#IESabroad) in tons of wonderful photos on Instagram showcasing the multitude of amazing things in their host cities and on their weekend excursions. But we wondered, why should only we get to see them?
With that in mind, we decided to compile some of our favorites from the past month that we feel demonstrate the incredible variety of experiences around the world. From the sobering Holocaust Memorial in Berlin to the radiant Shanghai skyline, check out these 10 Instagram pics to see for yourself how colorful, breathtaking, heart-racing, jaw-dropping, and empowering studying abroad can be.
