I'm 17 and I'm currently living in Scotland (where I've always lived) and I'm finishing my last year at school. Travelling has been a goal I've had ever since I was young and I want to actually fulfill it and not just leave it until it's too late. I'm looking for a job at the moment, I've been unsuccessful the past few months but I'm not giving up just yet! I intend on doing some reseach on travelling in the next year or so and I thought this website would be a great place to start getting information. I don't really know where to start when it comes to taking a gap year. I'm going to start saving up as much money as possible, that's the first thing. I need to decide whether I'm going to take a gap year after school before I go to university or whether I'm going to do it after university. I'm new to the whole prospect of travelling so it would be great getting to talk to people who are in my current situation and experienced travellers!
