I am a 19 year old female college student torn between studying abroad in the Spring semester or going on a Rick Steves tour alone in May/June as a high school/college graduation gift from my parents. After this semester, I will have met all my Gen Ed requirements for my degree and will only need a few more credits my last semester to graduate. Since I have room to play with my schedule, I want to take this time to travel as I have always wanted to go to Europe. The problem is I want to go everywhere and do everything and I have an extremely hard time making decisions!
Here are my options:
Study Abroad in Florence for 3 weeks during the Winter semester (3-4 credits)
Study Abroad in Tuscania, Rome, and Italy for 3 months in the Spring (15 credits)
Trip to London at the end of the Spring semester for 10 days (after taking a specific class) (3 credits)
Or a Rick Steves Best of Europe in 21 days tour that hits a lot of places I want to go.
Any advice/input/recommendations about what the best option could be, or tips on traveling alone, would be greatly appreciated!
