The question of where to go and what to do wasn’t easy to answer. Originally, we decided to stay in the United States and see more of our own backyard. We figured we would spend the year road tripping throughout the U.S. However, halfway through our gap year we changed plans to also include a month-long trip to Southeast Asia.
Gap Year Leslie
During our final semester at Penn State we had a decision to make: start applying for jobs or plan a gap year. While most American students are eager to get a job and begin working, the idea of traveling for a year was too good of an opportunity to pass up. So we decided to put off our job search and begin planning our travels.
