When most people think of international travel, their heads fill with images of short, week long getaways to far-away cities and sun-kissed beaches, but for the purpose of this guide, this section will focus on resources for meaningful travel, travel that also serves as an opportunity to pursue something of deep interest and investment.

While these are in no way the only types of meaningful travel, they represent a good portion of available international travel opportunities.
