Welcome to Six Year Gap Year!

Six Year Gap Year is a travel blog that focuses on long-term budget travel from a backpacker with eleven years of experience. Here you’ll find travel guides for some of the world’s most popular destinations and a few spots that are off the beaten path, with some (hopefully) entertaining stories and colourful photography to help share the beauty of this world.

It's me!

I’m Josie, a blogger and photographer from Cornwall, UK. I first left home in 2009 and I’ve been travelling ever since, trying to see as much as I can while avoiding adulthood. Now I’m back in Cornwall to study Marine and Natural History Photography at Falmouth University! One step closer to saving the planet.
