Get Involved with Gapyear.com

There are lots of ways to get involved with gapyear.com. As we keep on saying, we're a site built by backpackers, for backpackers, and that means you guys! Without you we wouldn’t have a site, so get involved in any way you can!

If you’re thinking of taking a gap year then you’re going to want to head to our planning section - that’ll give you loads of advice and inspiration on where to go and what to do.

Failing that, then hop onto the message boards. We’re a travel social network so sign up, become a member and get stuck in! The message boards are a great place to ask anything and everything about backpacking and travelling (it’s what we all love after all); they’re also a great place to meet people and talk about your travel plans.

Next is the blogs and photos. If you’re travelling then tell everyone about where you are going and what you’re doing. And don’t forget to make us all jealous by uploading your photos!

Lastly, if you want to write for us you can!

How to write for us

We have a number of features and articles written by you. You’re the ones out there living life to the full. You’re the ones with the stories to tell. And you’re the ones we want to hear from!

If you think you’ve got a knack for writing then send us any ideas or articles at editor@gapyear.com and we’ll make sure we get back to you. We're nice like that.

Also, we’ve set up the Gapyear.com Writers Academy. Go along and have a look. In return for a share of your expertise, we’ll give you all sorts of advice on how to write, photograph or video, a bit of professional polish to your piece and publication on a high-hitting url.

If you just want to tell us how much you enjoy the site or have a really random question, then hit us on editor@gapyear.com. And, if you’d like to send us a postcard, please do! They all go up on the wall. The address is:
