The ten most awesome places to travel to after your graduation
Your graduation can be nerve-racking! Of course you want to make sure you don’t trip and fall when collecting your award, but it’s also a time to ponder about what comes next. Travelling can be a great step. It will give you time to think about your future, and will open your mind to different cultures. You will meet new people and increase your confidence, which will help you immensely when you finally go for that dream job. Here are some of the best places to hit up once your university days are over!
On the north island you can take advantage of the country’s biggest city, Auckland with its many transport links and fab shopping. On the other hand you can delve into the Maori culture as you go further north of the island around Rotorua. Thrill-seekers may prefer the south island for kayaking and water-sports, bungee jumping or climbing glaciers.
Island hopping in Greece
Once you get the hang of hopping boats from one island to another, this will be an unforgettable experience. Santorini has to be among the best islands, with tall cliff views over the beautiful clear waters.
Las Vegas, USA
Las Vegas can actually be done with little money - which is all you may have after graduating! The popular gambling city has a number of low cost hostels, which will leave you more money to spend trying your luck at a casino or two!
Marrakech is a crazy busy city in the North African country of Morocco. But it’s definitely not a ‘bad‘ busy – it creates an atmosphere you are unlikely to ever forget. With markets, or souqs, selling everything from shoes to carpets, you may need a spare suitcase to carry bring everything back. Be sure to haggle for the best price!
Ha Long Bay, Vietnam
Vietnam’s capital, Hanoi, has so much to see and can be explored on foot. Outside the city you can visit a UNESCO world heritage site – Ha Long Bay, where you can travel by boat around the bay itself or just relax on one of the beaches overlooking the spectacular view.
England’s capital can be expensive but if you’re smart you can do it on a budget. There are plenty of cheap hostels to stay in, use an Oyster card to travel around for the cheapest fares and experience many of the free awe-inspiring museums.
Machu Picchu and more, Peru
Most people travelling to Peru aim to take the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu but this affordable country has so much more to offer! Check out Huacachina for sand-boarding, the Amazon rain forest or relax on the beach at Mancora. Goa, India For some laid-back, chilled time then Goa is your perfect destination. The tranquility and white sandy beaches will make you feel like you’re in paradise.
New Orleans, USA
New Orleans has a great atmosphere and nightlife - eating out and drinking are both much cheaper there than in other US cities. Immerse yourself here in a mixture of European, African and Caribbean cultures.
