Sport and Travel
The love of sport is universal and brings people together.
Combining sport and travel makes an ideal gap year. There are plenty of options.
You can follow the Barmy Army (that’s the England cricket supporters touring party) round the world, or watch the rugby world cup in New Zealand, or practice Muai Thai boxing in Thailand.
And if it’s work you want, how about training to be a scuba-dive instructor or a ski-instructor? If you join a sports programme, you can travel and experience sport abroad first-hand. You can coach football in Ghana, play cricket with children in India or teach rugby in Samoa.
Sports gap years are becoming increasingly popular. If you love sport, take a look at the opportunities here.
If you're looking to be inspired then look no further than Jeremy Fitch's article on cycling across Chile. Actually, cycling across Chile probably wouldn't be that difficult, which is exactly why Jeremy cycled all the way from the north to the south; much harder...
Anyway, give it a read... there are plenty of opportunities when it comes to sport and travel.
