The Emotional Journey of Booking a Gap Year

THE FUTURE. Together, these are probably the two scariest words in the world. Perhaps you didn't get the results you were after, or you aren't too sure where to go next? Either way, HELP IS AT HAND.

If you're thinking of travelling - but you aren't massively sure if you can do it just yet, here are the emotions that'll probably run through your head once you've booked your BRILLIANT gap year.

THE STAGES

You'll think about it (and it'll hurt your brain a bit)

Your mate tells you travelling's the best thing they've ever done, but your mum and dad are on the fence. WHY MUM, WHY?!

Then you sleep on it...

And dream about it and wake up LIKE THIS

THAT'S IT, YOU'RE GOING TO BOOK BEACHES

AND BECAUSE YOU'RE SASSY AND BRILLIANT AND STUPENDOUS YOU'RE GOING TO DO IT NOW

Next step, you'll get your mates on board (because they'll more than do, they've been there for you through thick and thin)

And you think of all the new people you'll meet to join your gang

(AND AH MA GAWD THE FULL MOON PARTY ON THE THAILAND EXPERIENCE WILL BE THE BEST)

Then, you'll go and see this.

And majestic things like this.

And then skip forward six months, and you're home and IT'S THE WORST THING EVER. Another gap year, anyone?

THE END.
