It’s seems like it’s been a few innings between drinks, but today on the Nomad Files we are joined by Laura of Eternal Expat, whose gap year started 6 years ago and just keeps on getting longer.
Thanks for joining us today Laura. Tell me, when did you discover that you were a travel fiend and what was the influencing factor?
I did an exchange semester back in college. I spent five months in Switzerland and met people from all over the world. Together we explored Europe, missed trains, stayed up all night dancing, ate completely new-to-me foods and learned about the history of places I’d never even heard of. I think it was the freedom and independence I felt on the move. My time was entirely my own and I felt so confident, so exhilarated.
