Would anyone like to join me on my gap year beginning in sept 2017? I want to travel as cheap as possible meaning my locations and dates are flexible as I want the cheapest flights. I plan on volunteering, or staying places that offer free accommodation in exchange for work (like on workaway.info). I would like to budget so I can travel for as long as possible and Iʻd also like to possibly find a job as the funds start to run out, maybe in australia.

i am 18 and from hawaii

possible places id like to visit: any island in the pacific, australia, alaska/canada (canadian rockies), south america, anywhere really..

please contact me if you have similar interests or would like to meet up somewhere on the way!

Hi Lauren,

I want to travel in a similar way somewhere spending as little as possible but still having a great time. I am turning 18 in a month and wanted to travel around July but am willing to change my plan. I am pretty open to travelling anywhere but not Australia because I live here ahahasmile South America or Europe would be my first preferences.

Hi!

I am looking for the same thing! My name is Shannon and I am 18 looking for a gap year travel companion before college during that same time frame. I live in the Boston area. I definitely want to travel on a budget. Australia and New Zealand look promising, but I am up for anything right now. I am just in the beginning planning stages.

Hi! I am also 18. I would love to have a travel companion(s) during my adventures.  I would like to work with animals using either workaway or helpx. I am open to other volunteer opportunities as well. I want to save as much money as possible. I am taking almost an entire year off (early September - late May). I would like to visit multiple countries during this time and am open to anywhere in Europe, New Zealand, and Australia. I am very adventurous and open to new experiences. I love hiking, biking, swimming, backpacking, camping basically anything outdoors. I can also speak German and Spanish if you want to learn a little. I hope we can meet up and travel together. Let me know if you are interested!
