I think every 20-something needs to do some traveling. Immersing yourself in another culture and seeing that not everybody lives the way that we do changes people. It has the potential to broaden your view of the world and change the way you live your life at home. Other cultures have a lot to teach people young and old about values and priorities.
I especially recommend traveling to a developing country. It will change you. Nothing can make you thankful for the blessings in your own life the same way that meeting people who donʼt have enough food or water can. Itʼs one thing to see images on World Vision posters but itʼs another entirely to actually go to some of those places and meet people who have so little face to face. Itʼs an experience I wouldnʼt trade for anything.
I'm a 24 year old girl who dreams of visiting every country in the world, being inspired and living a free life. I don't need much but I know that I want to be free.
So far, I've traveled to 15 countries, lived abroad in 7, gone to fashion school and made peace with being myself.
