Travelling Tips |HOW TO PLAN A GAP YEAR

Keep Your Plans Flexible Planning is all well and good, for instance who wants to turn up to a train station and realize the only ride they could have caught was day before, and the whole place is closing for a holiday. DO NOT however over plan.

When you leave home you should only have a general idea of where you’re going to go and the flights for them places booked. A good idea is to say ill give myself 3 months to get from Nepal to Singapore. Apart from the flight in and the flight out travel anywhere you want and stay as long as you want.

The best travel guide you can own is from speaking to other backpackers. Most likely within a few days people will have told you. And you’ll be getting an idea of the route to take in your head. Planning every day in advance before you leave your trip will only make you miss the best places, stay longer in places you don’t like and not spend long enough in lovely places.

Money Isn’t Everything

Money is not everything. Important to keep within your daily budget and make them coins go as far as possible. All that i’m saying is an opportunity for the sake of a bit of money.

A gap year is a once in a life experience. Don’t decide to not enough these experiences because you cannot bore them at that time. Get yourself into debt, scrounge off your family, work overtime for years to come, just make sure you aren’t looking back on the trip of a lifetime saying I wish I did that.

Get to Know Each another

Travelling is a social extravaganza. Think about it. Almost every day you are meeting strangers from countries far and wide. Your gap year is just as much about seeing the country as it is meeting locals travelers. If you’re a bit shy getting to know people don’t worry, it’s not as if you haven’t got anything to talk to them about. You will find the same conversation starters always pop up.

Keep an Open Mind

Be it with eating some strange exotic food or throwing yourself out of a plane above the glorious beaches of Australia. Managing to keep a fresh mind and fully enrolling yourself in all the amazing experiences will ensure you don’t get bored on your gap year. It’ll also give you loads of amazing stories to impress people back home.

Guide Books Are Only Guides

You’re likely to take one of the Lonely Planet guide books with you on your travels. Although as helpful and informative as these are. Don’t treat it like the bible!

Many people get to a place, look in the guide book, and do exactly what it says. Of course i’m not saying don’t do anything that they recommend, actually I’d suggest to do them, just don’t think that’s all there is to see.…
