Gap Years aren’t all about travel. Despite what Instagram and media coverage of a-list celebrities and royalty might tell you, most Canadians don’t spend their entire gap year traveling. They will usually spend between 2 weeks and 3 months traveling. If we use an average of 5 weeks over the course of a 62 week gap year (beginning of July to end of August the following year), that makes up only 8% of the gap year! What do you do with the other time? What do you do if you can’t or don’t want to travel?
It is very important to know that if you can’t travel, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take a gap year. I can almost guarantee that there was more than simply the idea of travel that made you consider taking a gap year. Don’t forget those reasons - do you need to get more clarity on direction? Need to make money? Need to recharge your battery? Want to learn more about how the real world works? ALL of this can be done without traveling and this blog shares some ideas on how to plan a travel-free gap year.
