Fox World Travel’s Rebecca Kollmann recommends celebrating a loved one’s graduation with an experience that will last a lifetime.
When I graduated from college, a friend was surprised with the gift of a trip to Ireland with her grandparents. She was thrilled, and although I appreciated the gifts I received, the chance to spend a week on the Emerald Isle before venturing into a full-time job sounded so exciting. Twenty plus years, a husband and three children later, she still tells wonderful stories about her week in Ireland.
Whether it’s a short break relaxing while the grad celebrates a world with no more final exams, or a longer trip that speaks to interests you share, there are endless options available. They are also flexible – the graduate might have time to travel immediately, or may have more flexibility after they start their job and have vacation time coming in the fall or winter. Regardless of timing, this is a gift that will be treasured for years to come.
Europe is tried and true — with diverse cultures and incredibly rich history, it offers countless ways to inspire. Sample a number of areas on one trip through our escorted tours, or venture through the Italian or Spanish countryside on a biking tour. Specialty programs — such as cooking classes and wine tastings — provide a fun way to connect with local flavors. Our Travel Agents can customize your trip to include the activities most important to you.
Are wildlife and nature at the top of the list? Alaska offers an unforgettable adventure of a lifetime, from sea kayaking and hiking on glaciers to visiting frontier towns and viewing moose, bears, whales and other residents in their natural habitat. Explore by both land and sea.
While celebrating, include the entire family. Family-friendly all-inclusive resorts throughout Mexico and the Caribbean are perfect for a quick break or a longer stay, and offer an array of activities for everyone in your group. Whether relaxing on a sun-drenched beach, enjoying the crystal-blue water or taking advantage of the nightlife, these paradises include a full menu of activities for people of all ages.
For a unique experience, Iceland is trendy, yet traditional, and offers rugged beauty of geysers, glaciers and waterfalls combined with colorful nightlife. Alternatively, if you’re looking to combine sun and sand with rainforest and volcanos, Costa Rica offers it all.
