The Best Experiences When Travelling as a Student

Thursday, 25 July 2019

Travelling is something that many students ponder over while they are away at university, including myself. It is the ideal time as you're faced with little or no commitments, time away from your studies, and a chance to learn and gain a different perspective when it comes to culture and how people live. It can be a great experience. 
However, when it comes to choosing what to do and where to go, you can feel a little spoilt for choice. It is a big world out there, and with a bucket list as long as your arm, you may want to seek advice from specialists in student trips so that you can get the most out of your experience. With that in mind, here are some of the destinations you may want to quickly add to your travel bucket list ready for the next student year, as they will certainly be joining my list.

Skiing in The French Alps

If you are feeling inspired to experience a real winter, then you may want to consider adding a skiing trip to your bucket list. The French Alps are a popular destination that many people choose to go to. Skiing is something you can enjoy with friends or family, and often similar trips get run by uni societies and groups so is a perfect way to get it all organised. With little or no experience there are many ski schools and beginner slopes you can take advantage of. Once all the skiing is done with you can retire to your wonderful accommodation and enjoy a hot chocolate or two. 

Seeing the Northern Lights in Finland

Perhaps you want to take your bucket list seriously in 2019 and consider seeing one of the true beauties of the world. Sticking with a winter theme you could head to the unreal country that is Finland and enjoy the sights of the Northern Lights. You could even consider heading to the home of Father Christmas himself in Lapland. Not only do you get to see the Northern Lights but you could also stay in the famous ice hotel and see some of the ice sculptures, making for an all round breathtaking experience.

Exploring the USA

Perhaps you want to consider exploring some of the fantastic states in the USA, and with fifty to choose from, you should always have an option for vacation away. However, there are a few that could offer you a different experience. There’s places like Washington DC if you are interested in politics and history. You could consider Texas and see some of the amazing sights like NASA or just enjoy a different vibe in the capital, Austin. However, we can’t forget some of the other iconic places such as New York, Florida and California. So much to see that the US could be added to your bucket list for travel each year. 

Backpacking through Asia

Backpacking is a great way to see a lot of a country on a smaller budget and is extremely popular for students looking to take a study break or use it as a part of your gap year. You get to see places from a different perspective and you are offered the chance to see much more. Asia is one of the most popular continents to explore, from the islands Thailand has to offer to the hustle and bustle of Bali in Indonesia. 

Let’s hope this has inspired you to consider some other types of vacations and destinations to consider while you are a student, as you simply don't want to let these opportunities run past you.
