Tagline: Gap Year Travel & Backpacking Round the World
Gap Year Escape focuses upon the realisation that beaches, sunsets and exotic wildlife can play a part in our lives whether during the adventure taken between college and university or later in life. Starting out as a hobby and a chronicle of the author’s own gap year, the site now has a small team of contributors guiding its progression into an independent resource for taking time out to travel around the world.
