Lonely Planet’s Essential Guide to Gap Years, Sabbaticals and Overseas Adventures

March 22, 2019 Lifestyle News No Comments

Experience the ultimate adventure abroad with the revised and updated fourth edition of Lonely Planet’s The Big Trip, published this April.

The Big Trip is designed for a variety of travellers: students and young globetrotters, anyone taking a sabbatical or career break, those wanting to travel with children, or retirees looking for their next adventure.

Suggested experiences highlighted in The Big Trip include:

  • Blackwater rafting through glow-worm-lit caves in New Zealand;
  • Surfing along Hawaii’s best beaches;
  • Volunteering on a Madagascan marine conservation project;
  • Learning to speak Italian at an institute in the heart of Rome;
  • A soul-stirring boat ride along the sacred, ghat-lined Ganges in Varanasi, India;
  • Qualifying to teach everything from English to skiing and mountaineering; and
  • Specialist destination and travel advice for those with accessibility issues

How to Use This Book

The first part, “Travel Smarts”, looks at everything you need to know to get started, including what to expect when you arrive in your destination and all the paperwork you’ll need to organise beforehand. The “Tailoring Your Trip” section is about organising your trip in a way that works for you and suits your interests. For more specific planning there are the destination chapters in the book’s third part. Finally, there’s the Directories section, a list of contact information for useful organisations that you can use as further resources while planning your trip.
