I believe that traveling is the most useful way for me to deal with negative feelings while studying abroad. When I was an exchange student in KUSA, I went to San Franciso, Orlando, Washington DC, New York City and also made a plan to Paris (even I didn’t go there because of the COVID-19), but traveling really helped a lot!

The very first trips you can take are bus trips. Sometimes universities hold these events. For instance, KUSA provides bus trips to Boston, Broadway shows, Princeton, Washington DC, which are not that far away from our campus. Bus trips usually only take one day, but the price is affordable, it is usually around $25 per student.

Western countries have spring break, Easter break, Christmas, Thanksgiving or so. So you can plan to travel during these breaks. For me, I went to Orlando with my friends for Christmas. I traveled to San Francisco before the spring semester began and I also made a travel plan to Paris for my spring break.

I usually chose Spirit, United, or Delta when I traveled within the United States. Spirit is the cheapest but there will always be a knowledge contest during the flights. United and Delta have more airlines. Check out their official websites:

For the most time, I booked hotels from Booking.com. Many of my friends also chose Airbnb. One advantage of booking.com is there are more hotels with great locations. Airbnb has fancy apartments, villas for you to rent, but sometimes you have to drive there. Public transportation is not that convenient to get there. Also, Airbnb is more suitable for several friends traveling together. Here are their websites:

If you study in the United States, it will be easier for you to apply for a travel visa to other countries there than you are in China. I used my F1 visa to apply for Schengen Visa for traveling. You don’t have to deposit a lot of money in your debit account. I only had $1,500 but I got a visa successfully. If you plan to travel to France when you study in America like me, here is a very useful guideline: https://piao.tips/schengen-visa-in-the-us-france/

Now the international epidemic situation is very serious. A few days ago, my friend was chased by the police for a picnic. It was not a good experience.
I kindly remind that overseas students need to pay more attention to the local travel policy, including curfew and visa policy, to avoid unnecessary trouble.

In the spare time, it is suggested to do the travel homework in advance. In addition, you can invite local classmates to travel together or seek their opinions and suggestions.
