You should take a gap year focused on adventure
You’ve got a serious case of wanderlust! To paraphrase John Muir, “the mountains (aaaand beaches/streetfood/jungle/temples) are calling and I must go”! There is so much to explore on a gap year!
Refine your options further by considering whether you want to scratch the surface of many places or deeply explore one or two.
Consider programs that include independent travel and not too much structure so that you’ll be able to shape your own experience.
A lifetime supply of unforgettable stories awaits… all you’ve got to do is say YES!
PLAN YOUR PERFECT GAP YEAR ADVENTURE!
