Articles Gapyear.com Needs Now

While we're always open to any ideas for new articles, we understand that working out exactly what to write about can be difficult!

We've had a quick rifle through our travel article section and identified some key gaps which need filling! These article usually fall loosely into one of two categories: destination-led and event-led. The former can be about anything to do with said destination, whether it's a general list, travel advice, or a personal story. The latter is usually much more time sensitive. For example, if you're going to write an article about Rio Carnival, we wouldn't want to publish it a week after the event is over!

The following list offers some suggestions, but we're open to any pitch. Just drop us a line outlining your article idea to editor@gapyear.com and we'll get back to you asap!
