I think the most surprising thing for me [about my BestSemester experience] was what we learned outside of the classroom. When you go abroad, you're experiencing a whole different culture, a different way of living life, and (to an extent) a different way of living out the Christian walk. It's so easy to get stuck on one way of doing things, but when you discover that there are different approaches to living life, and that those approaches may be just as valid as yours, then all sorts of new doors open up. That's what my experience did for me - it opened all sorts of doors in my life that I'd never even knew existed.
