Hello, and welcome to 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.
My name is Josie, I’m a 29-year-old travel blogger and bartender from Cornwall, UK. I first left home in 2009, I was 19 years old and in search of answers to questions I didn’t even know. I assumed I would ‘find myself’ and come back a changed person, maybe even… an adult. Nope.
That first year abroad inspired in me a wanderlust so deep that I’m still going 9 years later. With every tick off my bucket list, I add another five things to see and do. I have visited 39 countries, lived in a further 6 and have plans to bump that number up considerably over the next few years before the need to buy a house and fill it with cats becomes too strong.
I want to hear from you!
- If you have any questions regarding a country or visa application
- If you’re interested in a collaboration and have some great ideas
- If you want to work with me to advertise on social media
- Or if you just want to say hello and send me photos of cats
