“What’s your country count?” seems to be a question increasingly asked to international students while studying abroad. It refers to the number of countries someone has traveled to and is usually asked by people trying to find out if others share a passion for seeing the world.
While studying overseas, it can be wise to visit nearby countries if your class schedule and budget allows it. However we advise against visiting other nations just to impress others. If you made the choice to pursue a higher education in a foreign place, you likely already see the value of discovering new lands and understand that the number of countries you’ve visited doesn’t necessarily relate to how many memories you’ve made. You won’t go wrong by simply enjoying the place you’re in and immersing yourself in your new surroundings.
