Short gaps are all about packing as much of a gap year as possible into a short space of time. After all, other things might get in the way of a gap year, such as school, university, work, or even a shortage of cash, but with a short gap you get to experience the best of both worlds; backpacking and travelling without being away for years and years!
A short gap is a mini-gap year. A few weeks to a few months travelling, volunteering or working abroad - it's whatever you want it to be! You can InterRail around Europe in a uni holiday, volunteering in India for a month or two, or even work in somewhere like Camp America and earn some good money!
Make sure you check out short gaps if you crave adventure but haven’t got long for it!
