This is a community for ppl in the process of or who have already gone abroad, usually on some extended program--like study abroad, or foreign exchange--but business travelers or ppl preparing to work abroad are welcome too! There's no minimum or maximum program length--whether you'll be gone for ten days or for ten months, or more, you're welcome, here. Feel free to lurk--if you're just considering it, or if you're and old hand...
