[VIDEO] My Travel Gap Year // ep. 2 (Fears, planning calendars, and appointments)

My travel gap year starts in SEVEN months. That’s crazy to think about. Even though the planning process is a little overwhelming and I’ve Googled “How to plan a travel gap year” more times than I’d like to admit, this video series is keeping me accountable and inspiring me to keep working on this.

In this second episode of the gap year series, I’m taking you through the feelings and fears I’ve been having, the huge planning calendar/inspiration wall that I put together to visualize my timeline, the list of appointments that I need to schedule, and a few other things I’ve done to keep moving forward with this process.

Whether you are curious about the idea of a travel gap year, in the middle of the planning process yourself, or currently ON a gap year, I hope you find some helpful advice and/or inspiration in this video.

If you could travel anywhere, what would be at the top of your list?

Happy Thanksgiving weekend!

[VIDEO] My Gap Year - Why I'm Doing it + First Planning Steps // ep. 1

It's finally starting to feel real, my gap year is in less than a year... To document the entire experience, from planning to the actual traveling, I've started a video series.

In this first video I'll take you through my reasons for taking a gap year before college and what I hope to gain from the experience. Then I'll talk about how I started the planning process (trust me, I had no idea how to start), what resources I found helpful, and what opportunities I'm looking into. Finally, I'll talk about what my next steps are!

Of course, being the stubborn perfectionist that I can sometimes be, I spent hours trying to learn After Effects just to make the intro sequence for this video, haha 😂 It was so worth it, though. I'm really happy with how it turned out and excited to use it as I continue this series!

If you have taken a gap year or are also in the process of planning one, don't be a stranger! Feel free to reach out - I'd love to talk to people who are going through or have gone through a similar experience.
