Gap Year Features
Gap Year Features
Gap Year Features are your inspiring and insightful stories on gap years, backpacking and travelling. They come in the forms of interviews with celebs (more the travel celebs than the David Beckham's), Q+A sessions with gapyear.com members, and first-hand accounts of backpackers and travellers. In short, Gap Year Features is one of the coolest sections of the site.
If you think you've got what it takes to write a feature for us then send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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! Who knows, maybe you'll be the next rising star in our Gap Year Features!
