Traveling the world is one of the top wishes on most people’s wish list, young or old. We choose our destinations based on a whole lot of criteria, and what we liked to do in our 20s might not be as appealing in our 40s.
And yet, traveling the world is probably the most exciting for young people. Whether they stay for a week or a year, spending time abroad at a young age opens the heart and soul to new experiences and viewpoints on the world.
