Making friends in Greece

Annsley Davis, a junior at the University of Arkansas, has some great tips for anyone considering traveling with GoGlobal to Greece! Check out her blog below!


1. Eat everything in sight. You might gain 15 pounds but it is so worth it! It’s almost impossible to resist the Greek frozen yogurt or waffles with Nutella on top or the chicken gyros. Be sure to visit Kayak in Glyfada for the best frozen yogurt. Don’t forget about the Bueno bars – this chocolatey goodness is something like heaven in your mouth.

2. Take a leap of faith. Step outside of your comfort zone and do something completely ridiculous. Do something rebellious like bungee jump off the Corinth Canal and have the most exhilarating experience of your life.

3. Dig deeper. Traveling and studying with 74 people is sometimes exhausting but also amazing. Take advantage of the opportunity to make lifelong friends and build lasting relationships. Get to know everyone you possibly can on a deeper level and truly listen to their stories. Go on adventures with different people and find out what motivates others. There’s a 100% chance you’ll meet people who push and encourage you to become a better you.
