The new has re-launched. We’re on a new and much-improved technical platform. The site is bigger, better and faster than it’s ever been before.

We’ve learnt from member feedback, our own heritage and the best of the general social network sites. There are still a few things to do but we hope we’ve built something close to the perfect place for talking gap years. Facebook, Google+ and others are great but when you’ve got a passion for something like gap year travel, you need a special place as well and that, we hope, is   

The best of the blogs, boards and advice guides from the old site have been carried over. We’ve got lots of exciting plans for further developments including easy-to-use mobile versions.  

No doubt we’ll have a few things to sort out immediately following the switch. We’re keen to know what you think. Contact us here.
