Favorite experience abroad: I loved being able to hike in Northern Scotland and go to different castles on the weekends. Also, seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland was one of the coolest experiences I've ever had. 

Message to those going abroad: One of the greatest things about being abroad is learning how to deal with adversity and adapt to a new culture. Embrace the challenges, and push yourself to try things you wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity to experience.
