Summer is here, and for many of us that means it's time to travel! Whether you are going on one of the many Study Abroad trips this summer, volunteering overseas, or just traveling for fun. The library has good information sources to help you prepare for your trip, and have fun while you are there!
Global Road Warrior contains information about virtually every country in the world. It includes everything you would need to know to travel to a country from what type of electrical adapter to bring, how to find a doctor if you get sick, and emergency numbers, to information on food, music and history. I found this one really useful when I was preparing to go to Ireland on a COBA Study Abroad trip over Spring Break because it had really good information on how to act and dress for business meetings, which we did several of.
