This experience will forever boost your confidence and allow you to have the trip you want without anyone else taking away from your experience.

A Heritage Trip


Go back to the beginning and visit the place your ancestors called home long ago. A study at Emory University found that children who knew more about their family history expressed higher levels of self-assurance, and were better able to handle stress, according to CNN. And the same can be said for adults. "Family stories provide a sense of identity through time," one of the researchers wrote. Talk to your relatives, do some research online, or get your DNA tested, so that you know exactly where to go.

A Train Trip


Traveling by train is becoming one of the best ways to get around. It's inexpensive, and you can cover a large amount of ground. Not to mention, you can sit back, relax, and take in the beautiful scenery all from the comfort of a sightseeing carriage covered in floor-to-ceiling windows.
