Here's 5 reasons for those who are still contemplating on whether to go for ur dream exchange:
1) You only live once! DUH! There's no better time than to travel while you are young. If you worry about staying in a foreign land for 5mths, it's understandable. I did too but it's a good chance to learn more about yourself and your dreams.
3) Whatever awesome pasta/pizza you thought you tasted in Singapore, forget it once you step into the land of pizza (Italy). There is nothing better than tasting the local cuisines in the country itself! I did not know Carbonara was 'dry' until i reached Italy and fell in love with it. There's so much more learn when u're travelling! Don't be satisfied with your life in Singapore. Travel and you will realise there is more to life than grades and results.
