Whether it’s your first solo trip or one-hundredth adventure across the globe, you’re bound to feel excited. However, while excitement is certainly there, you may have some trouble deciding where you want to go at first. There are so many different approaches, from a luxury trip somewhere extravagant to experiences where you’re operating on a shoestring budget. It’s enough to stop anyone in their tracks, so here are four tips you can use to choosing the right way to travel for you.
If You Want to Have Fun
Everyone associates travel with backpacking, drinking, and sharing a hostel room with at least 24 other limbs. But, although backpacker tourism often gets a bad rap, it’s also a fantastic way to meet new people, learn about yourself, and have fun while still being conscious of your impact on the planet. Indeed, many people who opted for the fun tourist trail have come back changed. Not in a douchey way, I am the world and the world is me, but rather maturing through meeting people that have helped you enjoy yourself but taught you about yourself, too.
If You Want to Give Back
Perhaps you’ve been there and done that with backpacking, though. Or, perhaps it’s never appealed to you, to begin with. Whatever is the case, giving something back is another excellent way to get away from your current life and even do something that matters. There are ways to make a difference all over the world, including environmental ventures or Ghana volunteering. Again, you’ll get the chance to meet new people and learn a little about yourself, and feel good doing it.
If You Want to Make It Permanent
Some people are not satisfied with a six-month world tour. Instead, they arrive somewhere that they immediately know is for them. It’s hard to know this before you leave, but if you’re dead-set on experiencing something different and staying out for as long as you can, you can look at resources that help you to find work before you leave. This could be a job already in your field, or it could be something that gets your foot in the door. Whatever it is, it’s your chance to see the world and make money so you never need to come home.
If You’re Short On Time
Not everyone has the freedom to drop their life and travel until they’ve seen every corner of the planet. If you’re short on time but big on ambition, look for package travel options online. Previously, these have focused on Southeast Asia with an emphasis on Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. If you want to try something different, you should find similar packages in South America, Africa, or even the Caribbean.
Everyone has different reasons for exploring the world and knowing your reasons will help you when choosing the right way to travel for you. Whether you want a little fun before starting Real Life or you want to make a difference, there are plenty of opportunities available to you if you know where to look.
