I honestly had no idea how cool Nicaragua was until ILP opened a program there and I started seeing all the crazy rad adventures it has. This spot is close enough to where you’ll be living that you and your group could do some fun weekend trips out here! Shout out to the Fall 2019 group for showing us around their beautiful country when we came to visit @brinleysoutham @erin_nicole_18 @queen.karl @cheifcella @zadie_snow @taylorrubydale @mccall_nielsen and @liz__anderson

A few spring programs are starting this week, then throughout the rest of January and February we’ll have more groups departing. Post pics, embrace the unknown, laugh off the quirkiness of getting used to a new culture and a new experience, and be a friend to everyone you meet. Some days will be scary and some days will be awkward and uncomfortable and some will be the best of your life, embrace it all. You didn’t come for comfort though right? You came for the memories. The friends you make in your ILP group will make your semester what it is, so be brave and jump all in. Be a friend to everyone in your group, the ones you click with right away and the ones you don’t (especially the ones you don’t). I can’t wait to see your adventures this semester!

ROTI 😍 If you know you know. And if you’re heading to Thailand soon and you don’t know, as soon as you get there ask where the nearest Roti stand is. And then eat it every day and love your life.

I love that our Top Nine is full of smiles and new friends, plus programs in two new countries that we welcomed in. And not at all surprised that our favorite hot springs in Mexico made the list too. What a great year, thank you for being apart of it all. Cheers to another great year in 2020! ...
