Is seventeen too young to travel to Europe?

Jump to last reply

Is Seventeen too young to travel to Europe? 
It has been four months since I have arrived back in Sydney Australia after living over seas (Basel, Switzerland) for the past three years. 
Unfortunately, I had to leave behind a beautiful city, which holds many memories, and some amazing people, one in which is my boyfriend, whom I am doing long distance with. In May - June of 2015, he will be graduating. I would absolutely love to travel back to Basel and see him graduate, as well as spend time with friends. After living in Basel for three years, being use to traveling continuously, and feeling comfortable with the language barrier, I feel more than ready to travel independently, not only because I want to see my boyfriend, but because I just love to travel. However, my parents seem to think seventeen is too young. To some extent I agree with them, but for the most part I feel they are just being a typical parent, over protective and most definitely over dramatising  any situation that could happen whilst I am away. So, referring back to my question, is seventeen too young to travel alone?
