Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

You can go to an American-style club, store or restaurant when you're back in the United States, so why visit them while you're in France? Studying abroad is the best time to practice stepping out of your comfort zone and going to the spots where the locals hang out and make some new international friends. But remember, you can't trust everyone, so always have a buddy with you just in case you find yourself in any trouble. (Photo: Matt Dutile/Corbis)
