University not for you? Here’s why you should take a gap year instead..

In light of the recent A Level results, there are likely thousands of teenagers currently in the UK at a loose end and perhaps you are one of them. You haven’t yet chosen a career path that warrants higher education and maybe you are scrambling through the competition to bag that summer job?

This is the not the time to be pulling your hair out, worrying about your future. This is the time to discover who you are and exactly what you want from this merry-go-round we call life. This is the absolute perfect timing to throw your essentials into a backpack and head of into the unknown as the glorious ‘backpacker’.

The world is a huge place and travel will teach you so much about life. Everyday will bring you opportunities to immerse yourself in a new culture and try food so exquisite you won’t miss your Sunday roast. It will bring people into your life who will mean so much to you and may never leave. Travel will teach you about change. It will teach you confidence and to love yourself and how to treat others with respect. Travel will teach you how to communicate with others, even when you do not speak the same language. It will teach you how to survive without your family and friends to lean on and most importantly, it will show you who you really are.

So when you return, your friends may be a year into their studies, but who will have the better education??

Is it scary? Yes. Is it hard? Yes. Is it possible? Absolutely.

There are companies on the market that specialise in tailoring your year out to explore the world and find you the best airfares to visit all the places you can fit on your list and can hold your hand right up until the day when you spread your wings and fly (well… board the plane!)

So what are you waiting for? The world is waiting for you.

*Warning!! Travel can be highly addictive and you may get the ‘travel bug’.*

Earning cash while travelling need not be complicated… 

…. Work! It’s the same way we fund living in every day life, so why should it be any different when we go travelling?

This genius website has taken the muss and the fuss out of finding work when travelling:-

http://www.jetsetterjobs.com/

This is the first website to target younger backpackers who are looking for a long term working holiday experience and save them money in the process.

Every one of us who adores travel have attempted to find work abroad when daydreaming about our next adventure and found it difficult or expensive. This website specialises in providing work worldwide in agriculture, hospitality, TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language), admin/clerical, skiing, volunteering and loads more. To make things even better, they also help provide work in the UK for foreign visitors.

I love this website! It’s a fantastic idea and really easy to use.
