Ever since I did my first students exchange 5 months experience in Milan almost 9 years ago, I’ve realized the ultimate to live deeply and fulfill all your life cycle dimensions is to jump on a midterm experience with a strong community, a beginning, and an end. An in-depth story you could write a book about and then when it’s all done you start another book.

First, here’s all the common things that make those experiences part of the list:

  • Part of a community of 50+ person all there for the same reason

Here’s my list of top midterm experience I keep my eye on:
