What should I really do with my youth? I'm 18, and I want to really learn. Advice from any adults out there?

I am a senior in high school, just two weeks from graduation. If I end up going to college, I know that I definitely want to take a year or so off. I want to really learn things first hand. I want to see the world and study cultures and people. If anyone out there has been there and can reflect back, I would love to hear from you. What should I study? Where should I go? What should I really think about? I want to give the rest of my life a boost and give myself a solid foundation in my youth. Thank you in advance for your help.

    May 24 2012: Robert, thank you, I will! I check TED multiple times a day to check on my conversations. Better to start getting opinions now, I suppose. Thanks to all that have responded so far. I've read and thought about all of your comments.
