Before you start applying for master’s programs, whether you want to find an in-person program, or go for OU’s online MBA no GMAT, you want to do a little bit of traveling. You deserve it after all the hard work that it took to earn your bachelor’s degree, and there are a few things that you’re going to need to see before you jump back into your studies.
Here are 5 places to travel after college.
If you’ve never been to Canada before, then you should definitely start with Vancouver. Vancouver is a great city because everyone speaks English and there’s tons of cool stuff to do there. You can visit their world-famous aquarium, walk through the treetops along suspended bridges in the temperate rain forest, check out the museum of natural history, or try some 5-pin bowling. Plus, the architecture is really beautiful and the food is really as well.
There’s no city quite as romantic as Paris. If you have a significant other, then you should definitely travel to Paris together. If you don’t, then you might want to go there to find one. Either way, you should find it pretty easy to navigate the metro lines, there are tons of amazing art museums, and you can eat lunch on a glass-bottom boat as you travel down the Seine river. If you’ve never seen architecture that was built before the 18th century, then you’re really in for a treat.
Morocco is a gorgeous country with several small towns that are worth visiting. The country is completely different from the South to the North, so you should definitely plan to be there for a while. Start in the port town of Essaouira where you will experience a unique blend of Spanish, Portuguese, French, and Arabic cultures, then move east to Marrakesh and see the lively medina in all its glory, and then move north to Casablanca and Fes. This is a truly exotic experience that you will never forget.
If you are an appreciator of Roman and Catholic history, then you need to make a pilgrimage to Rome. You will learn all about Nero’s reign and the building of the great Coliseum, as well as the shift into the Holy Roman Empire and the building of the Vatican. The entire city is littered with sculptures along the sidewalks that tell stories and myths that have made their impact on humanity over the course of dozens of centuries.
New York, NY
If you’ve never been to New York, then you definitely need to go as soon as possible. There’s nothing like this fine city anywhere in the world. New York is the epicenter of global culture and it’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Whether you want to check out the art museums, Broadway shows, or if you want to catch a Yankees or Mets game, there’s something for you, and you’ll eat better than you’ve ever eaten in your life – if you know where to go.
