I had the opportunity to go on the University of New Mexico's "Imagining Ireland" trip the summer after my freshmen year of college. I had traveled abroad once before going on this trip, but this was my first time traveling alone and I was really nervous about renewing my passport, booking flights, going through customs, and all the other miscellaneous activities one experiences while traveling. Learn International made everything really simple by booking our hostels, arranging our transportation, sending us flight schedules, and scheduling group activities and tours. Katie from Learn International accompanied us for most of the trip and did an excellent job keeping us on schedule and teaching us about Ireland. Katie is the friendliest person you could ever meet and she was always willing to help in anyway she could!

Our trip began in Letterkenny, and from there we traveled to Galway and Dublin. We spent a couple days in each of these locations which allowed us to take day trips to various places such as Derry, Bundoran, Sligo, the Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Islands, and Glendalough. During our travels we stayed in hostels, all of which were nicely kept, run by friendly people, and located in safe parts of town that were in walking distance of major attractions. In summary, I had a great experience with Learn International, and I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to study abroad, but is not quite sure where to start.
