One of the best things about studying abroad is that you get to explore a brand-new country, but most students never get to do it because money is tight. You shouldn’t make that same mistake since there are many budget-friendly trips worth embarking on during your studies abroad.
Weekend getaways are the best way to explore the world as a broke and busy college student. Consider escaping for a few days whenever you can, especially if the country where you’re studying has a good bus or train system. Looking for cheap flights with low-cost airlines is also an option, especially if you’re studying in Europe.
If setting a whole weekend aside seems too ambitious, how about a single day? Take a bus or train ride to a nearby city that you can reach in two or three hours, or consider teaming up with your friends and renting a car to embark on a fun day trip by each other’s side.
Free Walking Tours
You don’t even have to leave the city where you’re studying to turn the tourist mode on. Most major cities offer free walking tours so consider joining one and learning something new about the history and culture of the country you’re visiting along the way.
