Pick your destination
Before anything else, you need to know where in the world you would like to see. Perhaps there’s a beach somewhere that’s calling you in South East Asia? Or perhaps you feel like backpacking across Europe? These days the easiest way to discover the latest fantastic destination is online, so do some research and follow your heart.
Once you choose a spot on the map, check online or visit your travel agent to get an idea of what the total cost will be. Take into account things like accommodation, flights, food, spending money and activities. Keep in mind that these costs will differ according to the country you wish to visit, and whether you prefer to travel 5-star or on a budget.
