    I am not a nurse yet. Thinking about going back to school as a second-degree student.

    I LOVE to travel. Haven't done much of it, but have been to Ghana (to volunteer), Italy, and Malta.

    Where have you been, for how long did you go, and what did you do?
    You can always combine the two! I'm currently in Inter American University of Puerto Rico's accelerated english BSN program. I've traveled to Ireland, England, Norway, India, Kuwait, Dubai, Greece, Italy, Spain, France...mostly sightseeing or studying or visiting family and obviously varying time frames depending on what I did.

    I got a job as an international flight attendant directly after college and got to see more of the world than I had ever imagined.
    The pay was horrible, but the benefits were great!
