Study Abroad

Berlin, Germany:

Germany’s capital is one of the most affordable cities for students, making it a budget friendly alternative to Paris or London. Public universities do not charge tuition fees for local and international students, and there is also a thriving start-up culture in the city. Outside of class, Berlin is famous for its nightlife and is in the heart of Europe, making it easy to travel.

 

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia:

Often overlooked when compared to Singapore, Bangkok or Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur has a much lower cost of living than the rest of the emerging economies of the region. Malaysia’s universities have been gaining recognition in the academic community and many of their top schools are in Kuala Lumpur. The city is a melting pot of South and East Asian cultures, as well as a hub for the low-cost airline, Air Asia, allowing you to cheaply get around Asia and Australia.

 

Lyon, France:

A semester in Paris might be the quintessential dream for studying abroad, but Lyon has been a popular destination for students as well. The city has France’s low tuition rates with much lower living costs when compared to the capital, plus you are less than two hours away from either the beach or the mountains. Study abroaders will appreciate the large international student community.

 

Mexico City, Mexico:

One of the largest metropolitans in the world, Mexico City has a range of impressive universities that students can choose from. Food, rent and public transportation are incredibly cheap, though be advised that Craigslist ads usually have a jacked-up price. The weather is beautiful, with no humidity and springtime weather almost all year round.

 

Cape Town, South Africa:

Cape Town offers a beautiful place to stay at a low cost. While utilities and private transportation can be pricey, rent and leisure activities are relatively cheap. There is no end to things to do around the city. The warm waters along the eastern coast are great for surfing. Hiking and biking is available on the mountain, as well as skiing in the wintertime.

Beyond Food Tours: The Best in Chocolate Excursions Around the World

Culinary tourism isn't new, but the way the experiences evolve and connect travelers to a time and place has. Whereas travelers once visited kitchens of restaurants to learn about its history before sampling the meal, today's travelers are shopping local stalls for the freshest ingredients and creating the meals themselves.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Review: El Navarro, Lanzarote

El Navarro is an unassuming eatery tucked between two British bars in an unremarkable area of Costa Teguise on Lanzarote. The restaurant might not look like much from the exterior, but the delicious cuisine inside packs quite the punch.
