I have many friends who work part-time while still schooling, and uses all the money they earned for their grad trip. Is an overseas experience worth the expenditure?

Am I missing out by saving instead of going for a grad trip?

    Certainly worth it! Because:

    1. You've work part time / school holiday to earn the extra $, not asking/taking $ from parents.

    2. You've only grad with the same friends once in your life at the best time of your life. Just like Prom. There's no 2nd take and even if you have trips after work with the same bunch of friends, it felt different and not the same anymore.

    3. It's a nice experience if you don't get to go holiday all the time and even if you do, it's with family and not with friends in school and it felt different.

    I had the chances of going backpacking with few friends from school at 16, even though only to few places in the north of malaysi, it's quite an experience and it's really fun with friends! :)

    So! Go work for it , earn the $ and Go for it!

    Life has no take 2. I don't support YOLO or FOMO but this is not one of those but it's a very good experience that you don't wanna miss!

    Cheers!

    Happy Grad Holi!
