To embark upon a year abroad it has become quite evident to me you that you need to be a certain type of person, and in my eyes, one of these key characteristics is open-minded. You never know what situation you may end up in, with what people and how being in a different country can change your perspective...

Based on my experience and conversations I've had with others, here are some reason...

Whereas now I have a much more spontaneous and open minded perspective. As I said in a previous post, one of my New Year's resolutions...
