This has been a rough year for me. In the past three months I have broken up with my fiancée of 3 years and also been fired from a good job of 2 years (for reasons I don’t think were fair, but that’s another story.) I am 25 years old, all of my friends have moved away, and I find myself very depressed here in Vermont and need to get the hell out of here to clear my mind and start fresh…a “therapy” vacation, if you will. I will be going alone. I am not a very seasoned traveler. I have been all over the U.S. but have never been out of the country (except Canada.) I am planning to budget a trip for $2,000 or less, which will clean most of my bank account out, but I don’t care anymore…I need to get out of here right now.
So to all of you traveling seasoned vets out there, if you were in my shoes and needed to go somewhere in the world to clear your head, where would you go and why? I have no criteria for my request. It can be anywhere in the world, even the U.S.
