Traveling cannot, and should not, be scary, expensive and out of reach. With how well connected the world is today, it is impossible to stay isolated from the world, so it is better if you go out there and tackle its diversity before it starts to overwhelm you. Krakow is a beautiful example of old meeting new - a historically rich town that is all the rage among local and international students. So go enjoy it together with the ones who already are doing so - it does not have to cost a fortune!
