The easy part is deciding that youwant to go travelling, the hard partis getting the plan into action.The biggest problem is informationoverload; there's just too manydifferent voices out there. But fearnot.
We’ve ejected the
non-essentials togive you the simplest first steps toget you from dreaming, to planningyour trip of a lifetime.

“5 SIMPLE STEPS”
 
 
1. Budget
“I Haven’t even decided where to go!”
We hear you cry. Keep your littletraveling boots on the ground, you
wont be going anywhere if you don’t
have any cash stashed.Now is the time to smash open thatpiggy-bank, time to ask your parents,your grandparents, even your fairygodparents for some monies.Before you even startGoogleing :FULL mOON PaRTY:draw up a realistic plan ofhow long you want to beaway, how much your going toneed and how long its goingto take to save up for it.
 
Questions?1.When do you want to go?2.How much money do youhave?3.How much money can yourealistically acquireby fair means beforedeparture?
Once you’ve figured out how much money
you have to spend, you will know whatoptions are open to you or not.WARNING! A year traveling aroundAustralia could easily cost £12,000,and remember immigration might not even
let you in if they don’t think you have
enough money to complete your trip!
 
2. Duration
Gap Year is some what of a misnomer,not that many people head out on theroad for a whole year.
We’d
recommend 6 months of working andsaving money, followed by 6 monthson the road, but it is totally up toyou.FACTOID:John Waiteis perhaps theoldest backpacker in the world at 89.
He started traveling in 1982, that’s
30 years on the road!
Are you a fly be the seatof your pants traveller ordo you need it all plannedout?
Where? .3

It does depend to somedegree on what you want to get out ofyour gap year. If you are justlooking for new experiences and fun
then it doesn’t really matter where
you go, but if you are looking forexperiences that will look good on aCV, you should put a great deal of
thought into this, NGO’s like VSO
offer many opportunities to helpcommunities around the world.
