"I've never lived anywhere in my life for more than four years. The first time I went overseas I was in college my freshman year doing a language immersion program for two months.  The pace of life is much different over there and it took some getting used to.  One thing that I learned in traveling is that you cannot rush to judgment in anything, and you also have to have an open mind and a positive attitude."
