I've been thinking about joining the military..which branch?

I'm in college right now..but i'm not motivated. not really trying my best in school..still live with my parents(i'm 21)....and I just really want to get out on my own and experience different things. I know for a fact that i want to see different parts of the world...asia and europe mostly. I understand that where ever they assign you that's where you go. But in you mind, which branch offers you the best opportunity to go overseas?
