The vast array of different landscapes was fantastic. I felt like we saw so much of two wonderful countries for only being there three and a half weeks. I also am forever grateful for such brilliant field guides. I think the most amazing and important part of their participation is their locality - each knew the specific locations and issues so well.

I think this program was truly incredible and completely exceeded my expectations! I learned more than I ever imagined I could while experiencing the most beautiful, stunning parts of the world. This program really opened my eyes on issues I had never considered before and I am coming home with a more open mind and broader world view!

1. Go in with an open mind, the person you meet at orientation who you think is your opposite may end up being your best friend
2. This is going to the most incredible experience of your life. Sleep is for the weak, make the most of your time and you will not regret it.

I can't say enough how great the program was. I would highly recommend this to anyone even considering it. The locations, experiences, and education was great.

When you go abroad, really go abroad. Leave home at home. Take the opportunity to really immerse yourself in the culture and experience and don't worry about things that are going on back in Georgia. Take time to really disconnect; I promise it will change your life.

This trip is by far one of the most incredible things I have done. The lifetime friends I have made and the experiences I had are indescribable! Truly life changing in the best way possible.
