I'm 26 and currently in grad school. I am in desperate need of some soul searching. I'm struggling to find out who I am, what I want to do as a career, and overall, to just take one day at a time. I've been researching some places here in the states, but would love to go abroad somewhere for 2 weeks. I don't have much saved up due to grad school and loans, so this would have to be a budget friendly place.
I've been looking at Kauai, HI, as several websites have suggested that as a great solo destination for solo female travelers. I also heard that Amsterdam is a great place to start out because they speak English. I have never travelled outside of the country before, but am willing to give it a go. I also heard that Japan has a website called Inside Japan and they help you build an itinerary. I just don't know if that is in my budget. I'd like to spend no more than $600 on airfare and have $2000-3000 for hotels and food. That's a tight squeeze, I know.
Thank you for your suggestions!
