Inspiration for travel comes from all kinds of places – a compelling book, a vibrant piece of art, an especially captivating dish – but the internet has made hearing the stories of travel abroad quicker and easier than ever before. There are all kinds of resources that showcase study abroad, specific locations, or a unique perspective on traveling abroad online.
