My Travel Story

by: Christy Coombs Start Date: Oct 25, 2013 - End Date: Feb 21, 2014

It has been a dream to study in Japan, and now I am FINALLY DOING IT!
I will be studying at Akita Interational Universtiy in Akita, Japan. I will take a Japanese language course to supliment what I already know, and history, politics, and/or business courses to help me in my goal of a career in International Relations, while seeing new places and making great friends in the meantime!

Please help me take this first step on this amazing journey, and helping me pay for the trip and boarding there!

  • Happy Holidays!

    This update is coming kinda late, since some holidays have already ended, but I wanted to wish you all Happy Holidays no matter what you celebrate! 
    I can't WAIT to go on this trip, and share my adventures with everyone.. I am so excited.

    I just booked my flights today via calling STA Travel, and the woman on the phone was SO helpful! She found me flights that were about $400 less than the cheaper flights I found online, and all the information is perfect!  I would definitely suggest them.
    STA Travel is really good for student travel discounts, and I got a great deal with their book now, pay later option, which allows me to pay for most of my flight later, as long as I put down a $300 deposit!  This will give me MONTHS to worry about paying off this flight, and the price is saved!

    I hope everyone is doing well, and good travels to all!
