Should I Stay or Should I Go?

16 Jan

Well, as I mentioned several times, I’ve been hoping to go abroad for the Summer. I’ve been spending way too much time (time that should probably be spent reading for classes…ha) reading travel websites and figuring out where I should visit, where to stay, what to see…etc. While looking at all of these potential ideas, I came up with another idea. Why not have an Internship abroad?! How exciting would that be???


So I started doing more research…and found a whole list of organizations that work to help you actually get an internship in the country of your choice. My choice? London. Its such a gorgeous place. Who wouldn’t want to wake up every morning and walk past beautiful parks and Buckingham Palace? And the culture…oh, don’t get me started on that. Its such a culturally rich place, and the depth of the history is just extraordinary. Plus, London is pretty centrally located for me to be able to travel when I have time. Chunnel to France? NBD. Cheap flight to Italy? Sure. Oh yeah–and my family emigrated from the UK. Many many many years ago. But that’s beside the point ;)

So, how do I feel about working abroad? Really excited, actually. It can almost seem like a burden to go overseas and then work, but honestly, it would be so neat to experience a job in a foreign country. Plus, I may be able to work in Parliament or for a Trial Attorney, which would be so interesting in itself. So, here I am, faced with a final decision…should I take the plunge and intern abroad this summer?!

    I say go for it! London is an incredible city and a great place to get your feet with traveling and living abroad. It might be difficult to get an internship without also being a student but your university should be able to help you with all of that.

      Well I’ve talked to a company that helps students find internships, so that won’t be a problem. I can do law or government internship & take a UK culture class in order to get a study visa, or I can do a full-time Fashion Business internship (just a “dream” internship I’ve always wanted to do!) without taking a class. So now I just have to decide which :)

        Of course you should go! And you will be so close to everywhere else in Europe! What a great opportunity! Go Britt Go!
