The Most Popular Spring Break Destinations

Ahhh Spring Break, it brings back such pleasant and unpleasant memories for me. Even in college when I did Cancun and other places I was never a fan of big crowds, package tourism and vomit. However, I always had fun and in hindsight I wouldn’t have changed anything. Just recently, a review of Americans’ Spring […]

ScholarTrips Help Students Study Abroad

If you’ve ever listened to any of my interviews, I always say that studying abroad in college was the best thing I ever did. It opened my mind to the world and really changed my life completely. Had I not studied abroad I’d never have done 90% of the travel I have done and that […]
