While it is called study abroad for a reason, not all of the learning is going to take place in class. Spend your semester abroad having the adventure of the lifetime because you may not ever get another chance to be this young and carefree while having the whole world at your finger tips. Even if you don’t have the funds for endless traveling, try to explore different parts of the city you’re in or become a local at a nearby coffee shop. If you did line your pockets with some extra cash before jetting off then check off some of these bucket list items. Regardless, when you’re not actually studying during your semester abroad you should be spending every moment exploring.
