Just Do It
Submitted by Sarah Anthony - Sydney | January 20, 2017
This program has given me the ability to travel everywhere! I have had the opportunity while my host family was on holiday to visit Melbourne, Brisbane, and the Gold Coast, Queensland. In May, when I complete my contract with my host family, I will be traveling to Bali, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, then from Italy travel through Europe and some east coast stops in the US before returning to California.
If you are hesitant or weighing your options to stay or go and they keep evening out, just go! I have a great host family and that has made all the difference for me, so I am so glad I invested the time from the beginning to chat with potential host families and ultimately go with the best match for both parties. GeoVisions was very open to setting this all up and giving me time to find the family that I thought was a best match for me.

AN AMAZING TEACHING EXPERIENCE IN THAILAND
Submitted by Kara Bailey - Missouri State | January 19, 2017
Thailand is an incredible country, and through my program I had an amazing opportunity to gain experience teaching and provide a wide range of English skills to my students. As long as you have an open mind, and aren't afraid of occasionally feeling awkward with not only a language barrier, but a cultural barrier, there's no shortage of new experiences and adventures you can have! During my time here, I found most Thai people are appreciative of the fact that you're putting in the effort to even learn the language. A great way to help you learn about your host country is by visiting the many beautiful temples. I have done this in both Chiang Mai and Bangkok and felt it helped me to understand the rich culture and history of Thailand. I have had incredible support from the beginning of my program, from teaching strategies to feeling safe exploring on my own. During my free time I have even been able to attend music festivals and visit Pai, Khao Yai, down south on the islands. There's certainly no shortage of adventure in Thailand!

This internship showed me how to enjoy life
Submitted by Stephanie Miezin - - | January 17, 2017
I’m doing an Internship as a dietitian here in Malta. I am having a great experience learning about new cultures, meeting different people and using my skills to help others. This Internship is showing me how to enjoy life instead of just working to survive. Everyday I am just so grateful to have another day in this beautiful country. I am also thinking about looking for a job here to extend my stay as I am liking it so much and meeting so many great people.
I made friends with people who attend the same gym where I am working. They invited me to have Christmas dinner at their house and it was a really great experience. It was so nice to share a meal and the holiday with such nice people from all over the world. Meeting so many friendly people here has definitely made a huge difference in enjoying my time here.

Great program but I'm homesick
Submitted by E. DuBe - Amsterdam Netherlands | January 17, 2017
The program is really great. I think I rated the program down a little because I’m homesick. If I were talking to anyone about the program, I’d mention that it’s easy to miss everyone at home when you’re on a year-long program.
The program isn’t at all what I expected, but I think I focus too much on some of the negative parts of my experience and I’m slowly learning to realize how fortunate I am to be here and living and working in another country for a year. I also know I’ll feel much better once I make more friends and broaden my connections.
I have been able to travel. MUST SEE: Rotterdam, Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, Utrecht.

Make an effort to get to know your coworkers
Submitted by Stephanie - Chiang Mai Thailand | January 02, 2017
I have been teaching in Thailand for just over two months now. I would say that in order to fully get the experience, you have to make an effort to get to know your Thai coworkers. It's easy to get into a routine and do the typical "hello, how are you?" dance. In getting to know them, you can make life long relationships and do things that are once in a life time opportunities, like going to a Thai wedding.
Since it is close to New Years, I am very excited to see how they celebrate it here. I have heard that this is one of the biggest celebrations and they go all out for it. In Lampang, they took about 2 weeks to set up lights and displays for New Years.
This experience is allowing me to take time for myself. Back home, I try to put everyone else first and sometimes I ran myself tired. I make sure to take the time to relax and do things for me and this program gives me the ability to do exactly that.
