Places to Travel the Year After Graduation
You’ve done it. You’ve worked your behind off and graduated. So now what? You should probably do something extreme and exotic, right? Something exciting; something you may never have time for again in your life.
So what should you do? Pack a bag and travel. Don’t know where to go? Well, aren’t you glad you stumbled across this blog post? Here are some of the greatest places you should go once you graduate. Book a flight. You’ll thank me later.
I would venture to guess that not many of your friends are planning a vacation to Iceland, as not many people know what actually happens there. It’s kind of like the big vacation secret here in the U.S. The land of believing in elves and glacier tours — you won’t want to miss what’s actually the eighth wonder of the world.
Seriously? If you haven’t been to Vegas, now is the time. Otherwise, I guess you’ll have to go when you’re … married? And have kids? The jaw-dropping attractions, fancy hotels, and casinos GALORE should be enough to make you pack your bags.
If you don’t go now, when will you?
It’s alright to be a little stereotypical and visit London when you graduate. Europe, in general, is quite the sight to see. If you don’t go, you’ll forever be the one who didn’t make it across the pond. Take advantage of the opportunity you have now to travel! And those English accents are to die for.
I spent a summer in Germany and didn’t make it to Berlin. But all of my friends did. I’ll always be the one from the group who stayed back to study – not a good idea, let me tell you. Berlin is a unique city all on its own. There’s nowhere else in the world like it.
If you’re looking for six reasons to visit Berlin, here’s where you should click.
Luxury hotels, street food that’s to die for, and something called Pink Lakes? Your curiosity is piqued now! Thailand is actually a great place to go if you’re trying to stick to a budget (probably better than Vegas) and holds opportunities to travel from island to island. Instead of just one vacation, you’ll feel like you’ve had three. This is the place to go if you want to be the envy of your friends.
Relive the days when you wish you were Lena from “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” by visiting the beautiful Isles of Greece. Maybe you’ll meet a guy as cute as Kostas!
If you’re looking for a beachy vacation — look no further! Cancun is one of the most gorgeous places to visit — and you’ll come back tan! Flying isn’t as expensive as you might think. The Cancun sands are irreplaceable (so make sure you bring back a jar!).
If you need more ideas … here you go!
