Grown Ups Gap Years

Do you feel a pang of envy seeing the joy of young school leavers on their adventure filled Gap Year….exploring the world, care and responsibility free?

Are you waiting for your ‘20 something’ year olds to move out of home before you begin ticking off your bucket list of travel adventures? Or are you simply stuck in a rut and need to rejuvenate your sense of adventure?

We have the answer - Gap years for Grown Ups!

Taking some extended time to travel is nurturing for your soul. It provides new experiences, wonderful memories, and is a break in routine you have likely had for many years. Gap Years for Grown Ups are also becoming increasingly popular as children are now living at home longer, so parents are taking some well-earned extended time out from the home/kids!

You have worked hard your whole life, so as you approach or enter retirement why not take that journey you didn’t get a chance to when you were younger? Or relive a journey from your younger years with the wisdom of age, and the funds to now do it in style!

To fully enrich your heart there are many organisations around the world in need of mature volunteers who are able to contribute their skills to projects and have a fantastic adventure and rewarding experience at the same time- eg: teaching children English, animal rehabilitation or simply sharing some time and love at an children’s orphanage.

There is absolutely no age limit to enjoying the benefits of a gap year so take a leap of faith and go on that adventure and you may just find your ‘20 something’ children will appreciate you so much more when you return!
