Just because there are some people who backpack around the world after saving up for a lifetime, this does not mean that this is the only way to see the world and there is nothing at all wrong with taking a job somewhere else in the world to broaden your horizons.

You can use this as the perfect opportunity to not only live your dreams of traveling the world, but you can combine it with doing something good and helping out these charities in their ventures. The choice as to where you go will come down to 2 factors in particular, the first being where do you want to go and the second being what do you want to do to help.

If you are studying, you could look to transfer your course across to one of the international universities and use some of your study years exploring somewhere new. Many universities around the world work in conjunction with one another and you can take advantage of this whilst continuing your education and living your dream of traveling. This is a great way to learn about a new place and a new culture as you will be living just how the locals live, and studying with them too.
There are always ways in which you can change your life and go traveling, regardless of your age and regardless of your financial situation. The key is to work hard, research harder and find a way to make your dream a reality.
