Choosing what to do on your gap year is, frankly, bewildering. The world is stuffed to the rafters with all manner of mind-blowing sights, amazing experiences and incredible events. It can all be very daunting – admittedly in a very enjoyable way – so we’ve created this section to organise articles which suggest ideas for things to do when you’re away.
These articles often take the form of bite-size lists for any given place, for example 10 of the Coolest Things to do in Cuba, or 3 Unique Working Holidays in Sardinia, meaning you can begin breaking down countries into manageable chunks.
If you’re after specific information and can’t find it here, just jump onto the message boards – chances are one of our 60,000 members will have the exact info you need!
