Where Should You Spend A Year Abroad?

  1. You got: South America

    Are you sick of being cooped up at your 9-5? You need a year that isn’t just about getting out of the country, but exploring a whole new world. Yes, South America is a huge place, but that’s great because you can head to Rio for city and nightlife, but also spend your time backpacking through amazing nature.

  2. You got: India

    Sounds like you are an adventurer, so a year exploring India’s expanse will open your eyes. You’ll have an opportunity to see completely new things, and if you need to do some soul-seeking, India’s perfect for that.

  3. You got: Barcelona or Madrid

    Both amazing Spanish cities, and chances are you’ll discover you prefer one over the other. Either way, get ready for a year of eating tapas, drinking sangria, and making lots of friends. If you’re looking for a place that combines culture with excitement, you’ve found it.

  4. You got: Tokyo

    Looking for something exciting? It seems you’re the kind of person who rises to the challenge, and is unafraid of figuring things out. (In fact, you probably like that.) Head to Tokyo, get lost in translation.

  5. You got: Scandinavia

    If you’re frustrated with U.S. policies and infrastructures that just make no freaking sense, a Scandinavian country will blow your mind: Everything is so clean, so efficient, so humane. If you’re a design-minded person, think about Sweden. Stockholm is so sophisticated and beautiful. (But just a warning, it’s verrrryyyyyy pricey throughout the Scandinavian region.)

  6. You got: Italy

    OK, let’s talk food. So much food. Basically, you’re ready for a year of indulgence, so go to Italy and immerse yourself in the most beautiful language, with the most beautiful food, surrounded by mind-blowing history. You could shack up in Florence or Rome and then spend weekends in the golden countryside or on the Amalfi Coast. Not too shabby.

  7. You got: London

    So long as the gloomy weather doesn’t get you down too much, your year in London is going to be so much fun. Also, did you know Americans can visit the U.K. for up to six months without a visa? (It’s usually just three months in other E.U. countries.) You’ll get a European experience without language barriers and make amazingly cool friends. Prices here are high, so save up A LOT.

  8. You got: Australia

    It would appear that you want to get really far, far, far away from everything. It’ll have a restorative effect on you. Also, sun, beautiful beaches, and the outback will help too. If you’re between the ages of 18-31, you can apply for a working holiday visa, good for one year. One thing, though. Australia is crazy expensive. So start saving now!

  9. You got: Paris

    If you’ve been frustrated by the lack of creativity in your life, head to Paris, the perfect city for artistic inspiration. While Paris may rank up there as one of those “most expensive” cities, you can find a studio or chambre de bonne (a little one-room apartment) at affordable prices. If you don’t speak French, you’ll be able to get by in daily life, but a certain level of fluency will help you with more administrative stuff as well as making friends.
