    I agree that it depends on what experiences you want to have. Are you into the idea of backpacker culture - meeting people from around the world at hostels?

    Do you want to get to know people locally?

    Do you want to go somewhere with a different language?

    Some places will be more impenetrable if you don't speak the language, and others, such as India or some European countries will have many English speakers even though it is not the main language.

    You can also do a language exchange for a relatively low cost in some countries, which can be a good way to be more immersed, though some programs are too touristy.

    Do you want to visit a developing country?

    You could try Asia first. For pictures and cultures, check about Thailand. Good food, beautiful temple arts and architecture.

    It depends on what you want to do....go and sit in a cafe and talk with the locals....meet them, go out with them and see where that takes you. If you give people time Most are very accomodating and you will come home with friends and experiences that a normal holiday won't give you?

    Buy a copy of Earth from the Air by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. It now only gives you ideas of places to go but a completely new perspective of places / cultures you thought you knew..

    My fathers job had us living in Europe for sometime as a child. I remember it well, but wasn't old enough to appreciate it.

    Garmisch Germany (Bavaria) in the winter. *Magical*

    I will go back, someday.
