Over the summer, many of our readers will be travelling to far-flung places to carry out fieldwork, volunteer or carry out placements. Working, living and travelling in a different country and culture can be hugely exciting, but can also bring many challenges. Over the next couple of months the GfGD blog is going to publish some 'Top Travel Tips' from students, recent graduates and experienced professionals who have all worked overseas. They will be giving you insights into things you may wish to take that you wouldn't necessarily think of, things they wish somebody had told them, things to do beforehand to prepare well, and things that will help you get the most out of your trip.
If you're going to do your mapping project in far-flung places, or undertaking a placement overseas and want to write a blog about your work - of if you've worked overseas and have tips to share then why not get in touch and help others.
Look out each Tuesday, starting tomorrow, for your regular dose of our Top Travel Tips!
