1. Get a passport; have it stamped.
This can be accomplished easily with a family vacation or a semester abroad or at sea. The location isn’t important; it’s about starting. According to the U.S. State Department, less than half of Americans hold a passport, which is a sad statistic. For a minimal investment, you can have a ticket to explore the world and obtain an education in international relations and communication.
2. Move away from your hometown.
3. Road trip for at least 1,000 miles.
Driving twenty miles from your home to the beach doesn’t count as a road trip. Buy an atlas and chart your course. Don’t plan so much that you can’t stop to hike the trail to the waterfall or venture into the quirky town and eat at the hole-in-the-wall diner. Whether you camp, glamp, couch surf, or Airbnb, gather your closest (and most adventurous) friends, create a playlist, and hit the road. Memories and stories will quickly ensue.
