Travel around the world and dreams for the future

Young people have enough time available for traveling around the world. They can easily get working holiday visas so they can legally earn money in countries like Australia and New Zealand. Asia has destinations like India, Nepal, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam which are great places for spending little money. I recommend in countries like America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and in Western European countries staying in dorms in backpacker hostels. I am glad I was able to do my trip around the world when I was aged 20 to 21 years old. I was single and had more more money in those days. In those years I didn't have the responsibility of paying a mortgage or have my children then. A young person can have so much adventure on a trip of a lifetime like that. When I am aged 50 years old that will be in 10 years time I hope to be able to do another trip around the world. I might have to wait longer than that. Isn't it delightful to have future dreams. If you could travel around the world when would you like to go? At which age? Which are your dreams for the future? Do you imagine what you might be doing in 10 years time?

Hi I agree that young people have much time but the earning also should be good to go for a world trip . I guess its not so easy these days. You are really fortunate to go on a trip round the world at 21 . I would definitely like to go on a trip if possible and have good bank balance. But i don't see this is possible in near future.

Hi Prashu. I hope that you get to go on a world tour one day. In a recession it is hard to get a job. I am glad I spent my money on a world trip as I could have an unemployed person. I had a working holiday visa for Australia. There I was able to do some work. Most of my funds came from letting out my cottage.

Very nice topic. I love travelling, till now i have been managing to earn so much that i can travel in India. Different destinations and places. Right now i don't have a job and i am confused where to join as such. I don't want to earn in India now, i want to explore other countries. I think the best to travel you can do is, go and get settled in that part of the country for timing work there, love the place, live there and then again change your part. This can be done only and only if you are single i agree. Well my dream place to live, work and earn is New York. It is something i can do anything to visit for. Other good places i would love to visit are France and places around them, Iceland, Canada, Australia and China. I hope right now i find a stable job.

Hi Archie. Good luck finding a stable and fulfilling job. Once you get that job I hope you save up for your next trip. India must be a very beautiful and fascinating country. I haven't yet been to New York but I hope to go there one day. Due to seeing it in movies I feel a little bit familiar about it. Good luck.

It is not only desirable to have future dreams or plans but also very important. Life can be rather dull and repetitive most of the time, even for those fortunate enough to have exciting jobs and high incomes, so dreams are a healthy solution to counter despair or becoming disillusioned with life. The opportunity of travel is less prolific when I was younger and travelling the world would have been a formidable expense to all but the wealthy, whereas nowadays I can take 2 or 3 holidays abroad every year. I intend to travel even more once I retire, which should be viable because I will have the advantage of being able to travel at much shorter notice and take advantage of travel bargains.

I am glad that you are able to take two or three holidays abroad a year. It is great that you will still carry on traveling when you retire. Travel bargains can be delightful when they crop up.

If I ever get over my phobia of planes, I would like to start travelling again, I will be 50 too in ten years time, well 52 to be precise, there are still a lot of countries I haven't been to, but most are long-haul flights which put me off. And there's the expense of course, if I had the money perhaps a cruise would be easier and more beneficial, as you can stop off along the way on a cruise. The only dream I have for the future right now is to get my own place, I need my own space and privacy.

Hi Wolfie. I hope that you can get your own place soon. Then you will have privacy and more space than you currently have. Luckily many places can be reached by train, bus and ferry. If you get more money in the future a cruise would be ideal for you.

Hi maximax8, although I have visited many countries there are yet many countriesI haven't been visited. Bhutan and Nepal will the the nest destination my friends and I going to visit if everything goes smoothly. We will try do get budget hotel or backpacker hostels. It's so pleasant to travel with a small group of friends. We can enjoy the convenience and joy of staying in the backpacker hostel. During our last vacation four days sightseeing in Sydney we prepared our own breakfast in the kitchen and have our morning meal together with joy We ate and chatted happily. We took our two meals in where we were visiting. We really liked the those delicious foods served in Central Market. I hope I would have the chance to visit countries located in Africa, Europe as well as South Pole If wanting to accomplish the dream I have to work hard for it. Happy posting

Hi Ikbooi. I hope you and your friends can visit Nepal and Bhutan. I liked reading about your time spent in Sydney. You have plenty more countries to visit in the future I believe. Going to the South Pole would be super exciting. Africa is amazing and I loved seeing Kenya.

travelled a lot and lived abroad when I was in my 20's and I am happy that I did those things when I was young because I was very independent at that time. I wasn't married and I didn't have a mortgage to pay or many pets to take care of. Today it would be harder for me to do the same thing. I am happy about the life that I have today, but I am not as independent as I used to be and it would require a lot more planning if I wanted to travel for a long time. I still think that it would be fantastic to travel around the world for many months, but today I would probably choose to travel for a short period (some weeks) instead of travelling for many months. In the future I want to go back to Asia and I want to visit Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Japan, South Korea and India. During the next 10 years I would also like to visit Africa and South America and but I am not quite sure which countries I am going to visit.

It was lovely you did much traveling and living abroad in your twenties. This was the time before you got married so I am glad you experience some of your happy travels then. I know what you mean being able to travel for months when being so carefree. Now I can see a few weeks is better for your travels. I am delighted you fitted in a trip to Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. You have much more to see in wonderful Asia and Africa. How fantastic.

I agree with you, my mom and dad did most of their traveling after 50. They had great times in England, spain, brazil and canada. My mom would talk to be g for hours after they got back. I have many photos here of their trips. Your post gives me an idea to see them. Great memories of my mom who passed last year here. Take care there.

Thanks a ton for sharing this discussion. Well in my opinion there is never an age when it comes to traveling, a travel lover will always move around the world if he or she is willing to do so. I have always been a travel freak and i am fortunate enough that i have learned a lot in my life thanks to traveling. I hope i can explore many more countries in the future also. What say?
