Hi Guys,

Im currently 17( will be 18 soon) and in my last year of college doing my A2 exams. I plan to take a gap year before going to uni to gain some life experiences and have a break from education! Anyone want to combine gap years and travel together? I’m open to any plans and suggestions!


PM me for any info or ideas smile

Hi there,
I’m also finishing of my A levels and I want to take some time travelling before uni. I plan to leave around January 2018 and travel for around 6-8 months. Before that I will work to get money. I want to explore a lot of SE Asia and New Zealand, Maybe other places too. I’m open to ideas. I’ve applied to uni for September/October 2017 but if things go to plan I will defer my offer for the next year. What sought of things do you have in mind.

Matt

Hi, thanks fro your reply man , I’m quite easy to be honest in terms of location but SE Asia and New Zealand sound amazing! Do you plan on getting a job out there?

I don’t really want to get a job there no. I want to spend the whole time without work to think about mainly and just enjoying myself. It might be good to do 2-4 weeks of volunteering as I think that would be a good experience but I dont think I would want to work while i’m out there. I’ll work before I go to get money.

ok cool, do you plan on booking the gap year through a company or just doing it independently?

Maybe partly with a company, the travel atleast maybe. But I don’t want to book everything with a company. I want to have room to do what I feel like when I’m there

Hey there smile

So I see you’re still making plans. I have plans to volunteer in India near the end of 2017. It’s through a great organization, with accommodations, food, daily hindi lessons for a week, and a tour of the main attractions in Udaipur, Rajasthan (which is where all of the volunteer projects for India are situated). It’s an old and beautiful city, a quick google search will show you that.

I’d really love to do any of their projects (Animal Rescue, Child Care, Community Education, etc.) and was hoping to do so with a travel buddy! If you’re at all interested, check out my post on POD Volunteer-INDIA-November/December 2017! It explains my plans in a little more detail haha.

Hopefully this fits in with your travel schedule. Let me know if you have any questions! smile
