I am a big fan of traveling the world to pass the time. I'm also a big fan of traveling within myself to pass the time! These journeys within myself can often be even more enlightening than the ones to far away places. You can combine both types of travel by going to a meditation retreat, especially when it's one that teaches you how to meditate.
There are many meditation retreats out there, but the one offered by dhamma.org not only teaches you how to meditate, it's free. You can give a donation if you like at the end, or later. They not only feed you well at this retreat, but all the work you are doing is for yourself and your soul! Here's a blog about my personal experience at the 10-day retreat in Kaufman, Texas. Dhamma.org has retreat centers all around the world, so you can find one closer to you! I'd recommend this for anyone.
