Travelling, especially when you're young and haven't got a job to rush back to, broadens the intellectual horizon, can bag you lots of new friends in interesting places and teaches you an abundance of new skills and stuff about yourself. But you don't want to follow the herd! There are lots of exciting, unusual destinations that aren't infested with busloads of tourists snapping away at selfies without bothering to look at their surroundings. Here is a selection to get you started on the "secret destinations" route:
1. Kotor, Montenegro
Sitting on the banks of Boka Kotorska, a gorgeous Adriatic bay, Kotor seems to have evaded time, the terrible reaper. It's like entering a time-bubble, where cobbled streets and towering stone structures, some of which dating back to ancient Roman occupation of Montenegro, vie with medieval Gothic buildings that are magical in their fairytale style. You won't want to leave!
