About Six Year Gap Year

Six Year Gap Year is a travel blog that focuses on long term, budget and solo travel. It’s a collection of stories, tips and advice from one girl avoiding adulthood by travelling the world.

Josie Acland is a writer, photographer and blogger from Cornwall, UK. She first left home in 2009 on a ‘gap year’ and, 8 years later, she’s still on the road.

She has visited 25 countries and has lived and worked in a further 6 with plans to bump that number up considerably in the next 4 years before the need to buy a house and fill it with cats becomes too strong.


If you have any questions about anything at all she would love to here from you.

You can contact her on sixyeargapyear@gmail.com.

If you would like to keep up with the adventures you can do so via Facebook and Instagram.
