When THINK Global School arrived in Bosnia & Herzegovina in 2016, our accompanying students and staff weren’t entirely sure what they were about to experience. To their surprise, they left profoundly changed by the people they met, the landscapes they explored, and the ideas...

Leave your perceptions at the temple door India is a country known for its innumerable deities, mouth-searing dishes, elaborate weddings, and multicolored sarees. Once you venture past these cliches, however, you realize that few places offer as many bold and unique experiences to the travelers willing to seek them out.
