Going to a different country really allows you to get away from your every day life and open your eyes to the different culture. You get a great perspective of your life and what you really what or don't want to change in your life.
Our trip did just that for us. Especially when we did not have cell phone service with us unless we were in hot spots. Although we did have some access, free wifi was not readily available to us. We truly got to experience the new places without electronics. You don't really realize how often you pull out your cell phone to check your texts, social networking sites, emails, etc. That takes time away from spending quality time with whoever it is you are with.
Don't get me wrong, I love all that, but I've realized that it shouldn't take over your life.
