18 years-old girl seeking advice on where to go for 3 months

Jump to last reply

Hi there! I am an 18 years old girl taking a gap year. I have been doing some light travel, only in Europe and North Africa, as well as working abroad to earn some money to go somewhere for 3 months.
I am seeking advice on where to go. My dream travel for this period would be to go somewhere exotic, completely new, natural, warm, with a totally different culture, nice people, good environment (I mean: forests, beaches, mountains, something like this, but also a good vibe as I would like to meet other backpackers and open-minded people in the way and perhaps go to a festival) and that could offer oportunites to volunteer whether in conservation, environment, agriculture or community projects or in medicine as I am an elective medicine.
I calculate I will hopefully have a budget of 2500€ (I know it's short but I won't earn more, I am sure) for everything, including flights and insurance.
I am willing to go anywhere really, I just wish it will be a dream journey! I don't mind staying at youth hostels, campings, share a flat rent for some weeks; travel in really cheap means of transportation and eat in the cheapest way too.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING is that it is SAFE for a 18 years old girl travel. Not really because of me, as I am really looking for adventure and think I am brave enough and I can fend for myself very easily abroad and alone, but for my parents' sake eheh.
It would also be great if it was a place with some "freak hippie communities", transe festivals, beaches to surf and maybe wwoof farms, so that I could spend some weeks working in something I enjoy and not spending money!
I have thought about South and Central America, South-East Asia, India, Australia... what do you think it's my best option?
Oh, and I am flying from Portugal. And it will be in May-July.
I would appreciate all the help and ideas you can give! Thanks.
