College is the time to explore your identity, broaden your horizons, and experience new things. One of the best ways to do that is through travel. Travel is one of the most enriching experiences you can have, especially while you are young. Here are some of the most exciting destinations and trips you should add to your bucket list before you graduate from college.
Spring Break Volunteering
Of course, most students are busy partying over their spring break vacations. However, you can have a much more meaningful experience if you choose to volunteer over the break instead. There are endless options to choose from, so you can volunteer with an organization that aligns with your beliefs.
One of the most incredible experiences you can have while you’re in college is studying abroad. You can truly get to know a country while you’re there for an extended period of time. That way you can truly immerse yourself in the culture and get to know the intricacies of life in that country beyond a tourist’s point of view.
California Coast Road Trip
The Pacific Coast Highway offers an incredible opportunity to see the state of California in an exhilarating way. You can start your trip off in Santa Cruz, continue to Monterey, and head towards Big Sur. You’ll then get through San Luis Obispo, Napa, and then to San Francisco. Then you’ll get to Santa Barbara, and end up in San Diego.
There’s a reason this one is a classic, a trip through Europe is an incredible experience to have, especially while you’re in college and young enough not to have too many responsibilities. You can choose what kind of trip fits your interests and budget, whether you want to head to museums or hit up nightclubs, stay at a fancy hotel, or meet fellow travelers at a hostel. You can do it all!
Full Moon Party in Thailand
A full moon party in Thailand is a beach party like you’ve never experienced before. These are all-nighters that take place on Ko Pha Ngan, a dreamy island. While it is pretty touristy, it is still so much fun. You’ll get here by boat from Koh Samui, and join up to 30,000 people who show up to the monthly full moon party.
