I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I applied to Edumadic. All I knew was I had hit a brick wall after my second year in college and that I wanted to travel. Only seeing the Edumadic add on instagram once before I decided what could it hurt to apply! After some extended research on the legitimacy of the program I realized that this was exactly what I needed. I had traveled before but always with friends, I was always to hesitant to go alone.
Sitting on the plane to Bali, all I could think about was have I made the right decision. That was the only time during the 12 weeks that I ever doubted that decision. Throughout those 12 weeks I snorkeled in the Gili islands, hiked up an active volcano in the night for sunrise, learned to surf, spent an entire day playing with rescued elephants in Thailand, drove a scooter along the coastline of Koh Lanta, and made life long friends in the process.
Edumadic was one of the best decisions I could have ever made for myself. Not only am I confident traveling alone now but I finally found my passion in life. One of the most important things I learned over there was that you have to constantly push yourself out of your comfort zone to grow as an individual. For that I came home a better and more confident person that I always wished to become, all thanks to Edumadic!
