In my early 20’s I stayed pretty local… and by pretty local I mean… I pretty much stayed in NYC. It’s home, it’s familiar and I had’t gained the ideal that I would much rather spend money on experience than on things. When I turned 25 I realized that I was living a “dream”. I didn’t have any major bills (besides my school loans which are pretty major in themselves), I had a full time job, and no children or significant other to support. So I started thinking what the hell am I using my money on if not on experience.
I started my 25th birthday in the middle of the ocean on a cruise ship with my family. I had so much fun. I visited four different countries on that cruise and had a blast. So I wanted to experience that feeling more often, because I work hard… and I honestly deserve it! And so do you…
Even if you are not in your 20s these places are absolute places you should definitely visit whenever you get the chance. But if you are a millennial in your 20s… this list is especially for you! These 20 places to travel in your 20s will change how you see so many things in life and they it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. I’ve got about 18 months left before I’m no longer in the 20s club (depressing as shit) and I won’t get to all 20 places before then… but I’m definitely working on making a huge dent in that list by by the time my 30th birthday rolls around in August 2018! (Omg… starts to hyperventilate)
