I am about to turn 18 and I am wanting to see the world to its best. So I would like to start by visiting Eritrea. Any ideas on how to make it there?

Honestly, I think Eritrea is a horrible choice for an inexperienced, first time traveller and I'd be curious why in the world you'd choose it as your first international destination. Their tourist infrastructure is almost non-existent and the bureaucracy is ridiculous, you can't even leave the capital without a permit. That said, to each their own but you must do your research and be prepared.

Start by contacting the Eritrea Consulate in your home town of Jeddah for Visa information... Be sure you have comprehensive extended health insurance including repatriation... Depending on the time of year and where you're visiting malaria medicine is required...

Good luck with your research and be sure to be VERY through...

Cheers,
Terry

Wiki travel has a lot of stuff that may be of interest.
It does mention Nasair from Jeddah

And Lonely planet too has some good things to say.

Looks like a very unusual place - happy travels.
