How can I convince my mom to take a family vacation out of the country?

I want to see all amazing things and cultures on different continents but she says there's more to see in North America, I made a bucket list of places I want to go in my life how can I convince her to go on a vacation off North America.

Have you considered your Family may not be able to afford taking a Overseas vacation?
Can get quite expensive, including flights, visas, currency exchange rates etc.
if money is not the issue try by learning all you can on the main country you want to go to, learn some conversational aspects of the language, find out as much as you can about the costs involved in going there and then impress your parents with just how much you have put forth in your desire to go there; they might just grant your wish!
Hope you get to go soon, if not now, don't give up; start saving and go yourself as soon as you can! Or look into exchange study programs, they work both ways, kids from other countries come here just as Americans go there.. Its worth it!! There's an amazing world out there!! Good luck!:-)

How old are you? Just wondering; you say you can afford it( or do you mean she can?) , and yet you need her permission so that's why I'm wondering..
As far as you Ma, seems like she is either very attached to certain spot or state, or that she's just scared to face things she's not used to. And if you are still young that may be a big problem since you can't take charge and be the "leader" so she can get over that fear... Maybe take smaller steps and start with a cruise? They are pretty standard and your Ma could easily feel comfortable, yet you'd at least see some different places.

Star Hi wittipier , good answer . I still agree with what you stated earlier . Maybe the cost of that type vacation is too much ? She cant afford it .
Times are hard .
@1D fan no offense , but something tells me you're still young & really don't realize how costly an overseas vacation can be . Especially with all the things & places you wish to do & visit .

tell her you will pay for it x) I think you should just continue to bring it up every once in a while and mention different things about those places, tell her it'd be good for the family to be able to go on vacation together and bond and that it will bring you guys closer together, good luck
