A whole new way of life: Sam Barrett's trip to Japan

Spending my final semester of college studying abroad in Japan was easily the best experience of my life! From the people I met to the places I visited, every aspect of living abroad was wonderful. Even the mundane things like trips to the grocery store were exciting and new. I spoke Japanese every day, made amazing friends, and learned about a whole new way of life.
