Traveling when your any age changes you, but there’s certain places you just have to experience when your young to get a completely unique experience. Find out 20 of the best places to visit in your twenties.
2015 has been my biggest year of traveling to date and as it comes to an end I’m reflecting on the year that was. I traveled around 29 unique countries across 5 continents. Some of those travels with friends, some with family and some completely solo.
Senior year of college comes around fast and after 16 years of full time study; a well-earned vacation isn’t a bad idea. Because lets face it, once you start excelling in your career, your next big break might not be until retirement.
Europe is the ultimate destination for a lot of things, and you can bet partying is one of those. Other ‘top party cities’ lists will include the typical tourist spots. Paris, Rome, Amsterdam etc etc. But in my opinion, those big cities are not as crazy as they’re talked up to be. Of course they have potential, but most of the time these kinds of places are bursting with historical attractions as the highlight and the nightlife is either far from the city centre, very spread out throughout a large metropolitan or filled with a lot of big tourist traps. A lot of the time you really need to know where to go as a local. And in Amsterdam’s case, marijuana is everywhere and with a huge focus on sex, it isn’t exactly my idea of a party environment. I’ll cut to the chase and tell you what destinations are traveler friendly party spots. Places where it’s easy to find a good party and easy to meet other travelers.
If you’ve managed to Google even one thing about Budapest, then you probably already know about the ruin bars. Tucked away in the Jewish Ghetto of the Pest side of the River Danube, the bars are an array of old abandoned buildings, left behind after the Jewish community were forced out during World War II.
Europe may not be large in size compared to other continents across the world, but it definitely is enormous in what it offers for travelers. If you have months of time to travel through Europe, then deciding where to go might not be too big of an issue. But if you’re one of the majority of us with a two or – if you’re lucky – three week vacation period, it can be tricky to decide where to visit. Here, I’ve tried to make that decision a little bit easier (but seriously, good luck!)
Well I welcomed in the New Year in New York, which has always been a dream of mine! I didn’t watch the ball drop, which had always been on my bucket list, but there’s many reasons why. Having lived in New Jersey for the semester, everyone warned me against it. Standing in the cold for hours, not being able to leave (even for the bathroom) or you loose your spot, below freezing temperatures etc. Not what I had in mind. My 2014 has been filled with many adventures and 2015 is only going to bring me more.
