This book highlights 22 stories of everyday citizens from all over the globe who have traveled, lived, worked, and studied outside their birth country. Their stories of courage, strength, creativity, and growth remind us that venturing abroad is not a step back but a large step forward in our career, academic, and life pursuits. Bochsler writes, "Whether you've spent long stints abroad or never before, this book is sure to enliven a multinational spirit within you, knock down those barriers holding you back from booking your next ticket, and have you wondering why it took this long. A new language, experience, broadened perspective, and skill set is waiting. You will be better for it. The world will be better for it."
