    Travel, encounter new cultures

    This is an intern type thing. You help set-up community nets in the Third-World.
    If you have some time (before university) or when you need a break, this is a great way to learn about the world and yourself.

    If you want any info on expat living just ask me! My wife and three children and I have years of experience abroad.

    If there is one piece of advice I could give people getting out of High School and heading toward College, it would be to take a year off and have fun. Not like go crazy, but just get out, take road trips, don't be in such a hurry to enter the job market. Because once you are in it, you are stuck for a good long time, usually.

    I agree whole heartedly. It's good for folks (old AND young) to get out and get some exposure to the world. Just traveling around the U.S. has given me some perspective that I'm sure I wouldn't have had otherwise.

    Please put more emphasis on USUALLY

    We have slipped the shackles of respectibility a couple of times, it can be done.
    Don't ever think you are stuck.
