Why only 1?! That would be a horrible travesty to only go once!!! I’ve been to 28 countries, and wouldn’t have it any other way. I don’t know that I could choose just one – every place has been so redical in effecting my world view!

Have you looked into travel hacking? It’s very easy to game the system with airline miles and get free airfare.

If college kids can afford to backpack across Europe….so can you!

If I had to narrow it down like that then it would be a very, very long trip to England, France, Germany, Austria, Spain, and Italy.

But I also want to see Canada, New Zealand, Australia and lots of other places besides!

Why don’t you use time of year to narrow the choices down – and what sort of trip you want (beach, ski, hiking etc)?  

You have your whole life to travel to all the countries on your list – and you can travel to most places comfortably on a budget.  

Places I’d recommend are France, Spain, Italy, Vietnam, Japan, Argentina (I’ll stop myself there).

This is a hypothetical question though, right? I hope you are able to travel outside of the country more than once in your life! 🙂

I can’t imagine only being able to leave the country  once, but if I did, I would pick a destination  region with a culture as opposite to my own as possible, and try to see a mix of urban and rural life. Bonus points if I could learn at least a little of the local language.  There are so many reasons to love travel but the exposure to different ways of life is one of my favorites, and one of the most valuable lifelong lessons. No point in wasting my once-in-a-lifetime chance to see how the rest of the world lives by spending a week on the beach or visiting an urban location that’s fairly similar to my own.  Since I live in DC, I would probably choose Asia, and try to see as many countries as possible: China, Japan, Singapore, and so forth.  While I love Sydney, Auckland, and Melbourne (for example), their culture is not too much different to what I already know, and while I would no doubt have a lovely time, I would be less likely to grow as a person there than if I were immersed in a truly different culture.

Just one? Hmmm probably Italy. No matter how many places I go nothing ever tops it for me. If I had to be specific I’d probably go to Tuscany or Positano.

Canada would be my first pick.
