From the frozen northern reaches of Finland, to the southern stretches of the pampas in Patagonia the traveler could experience the vastness of space and the vastness of the earth. From the old city of Budapest in Eastern Europe to the old city of Tokyo in the Far East the explorer could soak up the diametrically different cultures from both sides of the planet. And to top it off, visiting the Great Wall of China would give this individual the understanding of human ingenuity at its finest. Nowadays people think traveling is an extravagant vacation, but with these locations, the young traveler is able to stray off the beaten path, and truly understand how different cultures live and interact with one another.
