The world is a beautiful place. As any traveller would know, jetting off halfway across the globe can open unique opportunities to explore, learn and grow as a person. Whether you’re looking for a holiday, taking a gap year or ready to start a brand new life, just like I did, it makes sense to jump off the beaten track and travel on your own terms.
For those who have limited travel experience, however, backpacking can be a daunting thought. How will you manage in a foreign country when you can’t speak the lingo? Who are you going to call if something goes wrong? While you’re bound to have questions spinning around in your head, sometimes there’s no better way to answer them than to pull the trigger and book a one-way flight!
While 76% of gap year travellers are aged between 18-25 years old, there’s no reason why you can’t head off on a journey of your own right now. Global Work and Travel’s infographic, below, is a great example of how anybody can find solace in travel – whether you’re a thrill-seeker or an introvert.
