I've seen a couple of these lists circulating on travel blogs this year. And listing why you shouldn't wait to travel — or really to do anything you love — isn't a new revelation. But, when the job market still seems stale and young people are increasingly finding it difficult to find/decide/conform to full-time work (or full-time academics), it can be a nice reminder that you don't always have to follow the status quo.
That's why if you are trying to decide to take some time off of college or work, or you already have and want to take more off, reading BootsnAll's article on 11 Reasons to Stop Dreaming and Start Planning Your Round the World Trip is a worthwhile way to spend the next 10 minutes.
And with InterExchange's Working Abroad programs, you'll be more than just a tourist. With our volunteer and work programs, you can gain professional and international experience, earn money, take language classes and discover a new culture. It's the best of both worlds!
