Ours is a world of wonders, and these are some global travel destinations that you just have to see in person, assuming you have the kind of parents who can bankroll the whole thing:
1. Ibiza, Spain
Have a blast swimming off the coast of this island’s idyllic sea if your parents are footing the bill; otherwise, check out your local community pool, which has a great diving board, perfect for cannonballs.
2. Preikestolen, Norway
This naturally square cliff juts regally over a picturesque valley, providing a view unlike any you’ve ever personally financed.
3. Island Of Pag, Croatia
This place is as close to heaven as you will find on earth, unless your parents balk at the price tag.
4. Tianzi Mountain Nature Reserve, China
You’ve never truly witnessed the majesty of our planet until you’ve stood atop one of these massive spires and paid your tour guide with the money provided by your mother and father.
5. Neuschwanstein Castle, Bavaria, Germany
This 19th-century palace on a rugged hilltop features unique architecture, spectacular views, and, best of all, it’s affordable, assuming you’re only paying for the occasional pack of cigarettes while you get your parents to pick up the hotel and all of your meals.
6. Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Embrace your wild side and experience all the illicit temptations this city has to offer, so long as you’re able to convince your parents you can hit them back for the expenses.
7. Dubai, United Arab Emirates
This playground for the super-rich offers everything from go-kart racing to underwater hotels, so it’s probably going to be a bit of a stretch to get your parents on board with this one; but hey, who knows?
8. Tromsø, Norway
One of the only places on earth where you can witness the Aurora Borealis, the immaculate natural display of the “Northern Lights.” According to Orbitz, round-trip airfare to Tromsø is around $2,500, so if mom and dad won’t cover it, almost every computer in the world has some sort of image of the Aurora as one of its default background options.
9. Las Vegas, United States
The “city that never sleeps” can really put a pounding on your wallet, but if your parents are paying, what’s the harm in “putting it all on black” and letting that wheel spin?
10. Aogashima Volcano, Japan
This one-of-a-kind volcano island is a site you MUST visit before you die and before your parents die and take their disposable income with them.
