6 Great Gap Year Ideas

Posted by No Comment

A gap year is the perfect time to do all those things you’ve always wanted to do.

But what if you know you want to do ‘something’, you’re not entirely sure what?

The people at STA Travel deal with thousands of people taking gap years every year, and they often help them plan their gap year by discussing the options available to them.

They’re narrowed down most people’s gap years abroad to 6 main ideas.

Here are 6 great ideas for a gap year (as written by Ant Stone of STA Travel):

  • Working Abroad
  • Learning a New Language
  • Visiting ‘down under’ (Australia and New Zealand)
  • Volunteering
  • Traveling Around the World
  • Traveling Overland (e.g. on the Trans-Siberian Railway)

If you think about it, most people who live in the Western world and take a gap year do one (or more than one) of these things.

Of course, there are a million variations of each idea, but if you’re not sure what it is you want to do, choose one of these 6 ideas and start from there.
