Work in Argentina

A great way to experience Argentina is to work as a gaucho on one of the ranches. Some of the ranches are strictly for herding cattle and some of them have guest houses that they rent out to tourists. You can find ranches that will offer free food and accommodation if you are willing to work for free. Most of these require a commitment of a minimum of three months so make sure you have the time stay that long.

Travel to Munich, Germany in late September through to the first weekend in October and take part in Oktoberfest. It is one of the biggest parties in the world and over 6 million people attend it annually. Vast amounts of beer are consumed and there are festivities and delicious local food.  This is one of the best things to do in your 20s!
