Where to find yourself

The line “Abroad is the place where we stay up late, follow impulse and find ourselves as wide open as when we are in love” struck me particularly. After George Stedfast’s speech where he talked about the importance of free time I have thought a lot about it’s importance. Having a place to make such mistakes and to find oneself can not be taken for granted. Abroad when you are not concerned with other people and their opinions you are forced to define your morals. This is why when abroad you find yourself, you have to make decisions about what you believe, not what the people around you believ.
