I'm 26 years old. I work at a CPA firm and almost have my CPA license.
Money-wise, I'm doing okay. I have student loans and expenses for my cpa exams so I'm not flushed with cash-so to speak.
I've never been out of the country (unless you count a family trip to Mexico when I was younger). I really think it would be cool to travel to Europe and see a bunch of different countries. I see pictures online all the time of these cool landscapes and interesting places.
I don't have a girlfriend. I don't know who I could take over there so maybe I'd go by myself.
I'm just not familiar with traveling that far and in a foreign country, better yet by myself.
Anyone have any suggestions for what I could do, or what they've done before?

First suggestion, take me. Second of all, Europe is a good choice for someone without travelling experience who's travelling alone. I've been there and you can get a taste of a ton of different cultures and sceneries in a short timespan because like you mentioned, everything is so close together and it's easy to travel from place to place. Also many people there speak English. On the other hand Asia would be a terrible place for a first timer to go, especially alone since in many areas it's not too english-friendly.1

Some people suggested Asia would be a no go since it's not English friendly. But Asia has English friendly areas too. For example, Sri Lanka is a pure Asian beautiful island paradise. I've been there. It has everything that Asia has. Even though it's an island it has very beautiful mountainous range too. So if you are either beach person or mountains person you have your choice. Sri Lanka is a natural paradise.
I don't know how to describe it man. You have to be there. Most of the people can understand English. You have nothing to worry about. Have good level of security. Everyday tourist scams found in every corner of the world are available in this island nation too. But you can survive easily. Great place to start. If you need more tips just ask.1
