Gap Year reason

 

 

There's loads of reasons not to do something. To actually create, do or build something is hard. A lot of the people I like and admire have done a trip or lived abroad in some part of their lives. You know you can spend £3000 on a camera of massive big LCD TV...or you can take off on a Gap Year round the world. As you sit in your rocking horse at the age of 97, probably dribbling, I wonder what you're going to remember most... 

Australia

Australia is big. No, I'm wrong, it’s not, it’s fucking enormous. They do average things well. The light is weird. And the suburbs...

India

Food. People. Beaches. Hills. Scary animals. If you only ever visit one country make it India.

Peru

Ever seen a Condor soaring up Colca Canyon. It's like witnessing a dinosaur. See Chan Chan too. Plus the Inca Trial

 

 

New Zealand

Sheep. Hills. Hobbits. Nah try the wine or speeding across Marlborough Sounds in the world’s cutest boat. Or real live adrenalin sports.

Sex

It will make you more attractive to the opposite/same sex sometimes at the same time*. Prince William went on a Gap Year. We are unsure about Katie Price. *No guarantees

 


 

Recession

Double Dip-tastic. Take the pay-off and go. You can live away from home for a long time on 3 months salary. 6 months you're laughing* 

*Especially if you're a banker

 


 

Dolla

Stay longer in countries pegged to the US dollar ie South America, North America, Central America, most of Indochina. Your pounds will last longer.

 

 

Meet farangs

Have you ever actually met a Kiwi? Or a Thai? Got drunk with an American? Shared a flattie with an Aussie? It's okay they don’t bite*. Time to intermingle 

*Most

Je ne regrette rien

This won't be news to most of you but you're going to die. The only issue is what you're going to do before you go. Want to actually do something good before you go? Take an RTW. You know you want to.

Taste

Think you know what pineapple and satay taste like?  Until you've slurped some out of a bag on a sunny beach or nibbled one at 11pm on the street; you don't really. Read this by Jodi at Legal Nomads. It's great

 

 

Street temperature

Just as some girls are bigger than others, some places are hotter than others. The wall of heat coming off a plane can be daunting yet comforting. Alas you'll never know unless you go...
