Make the most of your travel budget

My family hosted students from Italy, China, Ukraine and Thailand from short periods up to a year when I was in high school. I told myself, “One day, you will visit them.” I started my undergrad program, and it was clear that studying abroad was not an option, but again I told myself, “One day, you will travel.” Three years later, dental school started, but this time I said, “Enough is enough. Today is ‘one day,’ and I am traveling.” I just needed to figure out how to do it on a budget.
