Laura Carroll’s advice for student travelers: The podcast transcript

What students should know before traveling to Europe: Advice from Laura Carroll

A few weeks ago, Students In Europe interviewed our own Peggy Goldman about what to do and see if you’re a student spending a semester “across the pond” (a.k.a. Europe). Peggy had such a great time working with the writers that we decided to turn the tables and interview Laura Carroll, Managing Editor of Students in Europe, in a podcast.

Laura studied abroad in Paris, France when she was in college. The romantic mood of the city inspired her and she fell in love with the people, the culture, and the time away from home. Since then she’s been an advocate for students to get out of the U.S. and over to Europe for a life-changing experience.

I talked to Laura about her travels and how she’s learned to cope with home sickness, handle currency exchange rates, schedule spontaneous trips to different parts of Europe, and more. She translates all of her real-world experience into practical posts on Students in Europe.

The website is dedicated to providing young travelers everything they need to be well-prepared for their journey to Europe. Its city profiles, news updates, product and venue reviews, interviews, and tips create a field guide to European travel for students.

Even if you’re not a student, my chat with Laura offers great insight to anyone looking to spend some time living in, or exploring parts of Europe. Turn your speakers up and be prepared to get rocked with information.
