But you're probably so busy these days you don't have time for pleasure reading. So click on the link above, then click on "Explore Destinations." Pick your host country or any other country you think you might visit while abroad and browse the articles. It'll serve as a good break from the end-of-semester panic session, and it'll teach you something about the place you'll be exploring this Summer or Fall.
Let's say you're going to Germany this summer. We click on the link and find: info on eating vegetarian, a guide to the Bavarian Alps, an article on bathing in a beer spa, photogalleries, a guide to Berlin. And that's just the tip of the iceberg that is the BBC's archive of articles on traveling in Germany.
Let's go to the other side of the globe, now, and check out Buenos Aires. BBC Travel will teach us about Cowboy Fairs and drinking mate and more. Five pages of articles.
One more country, just for good measure. Some of you will be going to Prague this summer. Would you like to learn seven surprising facts about Czech beer? Side trips to take from Prague? Prague's historic coffehouses? Yes, I humbly posit that you would.
So go to BBC Travel. Read up. Get inspired. Get excited.
