Teej, good for you for doing a gap year. Travel when you're young is quite different from when you're older. We took our first big post retirement to in the fall - two months in Iceland and central Europe. It was amazing, but it was different from the travelling that I did when I was young.

I know know that the travelling I did when I was young (22-23) was huge in shaping who I was as an adult.

You're further along in your life that I was, but I think it will still make a tremendous impact on how you view the world and what you do not with your life.

So, where are you planning to go? (I broke my ankle towards the end of our trip, so I can only travel vicariously for now, but I'll be back - I haven't been everywhere yet, but it's on my list.)

Thanks Davis, will mostly be exploring the US this time around. Think national parks, historical sights and new cities. I might do a year abroad somewhere but more likely to work a few years before doing that. It all depends on how much I end up spending while traveling. The good news is that all I need to do to match my current housing costs is spend $1k/mo on lodging, and that will be pretty easy to stay under - I have a month long room rental booked in New Mexico for like $500.
