It seems that almost every high schooler's plans for graduation are—at some point or another—to travel Europe. Pinterest is full of pins about traveling Europe, backpacking through Europe, and visiting specific locations. Visiting Europe graces the bucket list of most people I know. Why is the idea of traveling so attractive?
Traveling is an educational experience. When you visit a new place, you get to see beautiful sites, but you also get to learn about other people and other cultures. Everybody understands the world through their own past experiences and their own cultures, so visiting a new place introduces all kinds of different ways of thinking about and viewing the world.
Traveling is also attractive because it breaks up the monotony of routine. When you are in a different country, you don't have as many responsibilities and obligations—you just dedicate days and days to exploring and learning. As long as you have the funds to travel, your worries are minimal.
