We’re Maddie and Abi – both 18 years old and currently on a gap year. We’ve known eachother since we were about three years old. We went to nursery together and have been great friends ever since.
We decided to take a gap year so we could go travelling together and we have been planning our trip for almost a year now. The plans have changed many times but now our route is finalised and this is what we are doing:
L.A – Fiji – New Zealand – Australia – Singapore – Malaysia – Thailand.
Obviously we’ve had to work very hard to save the money to do this. I (Maddie) have been working in a bar in Cardiff for six months and Abi in a hotel.
We both have places in University next year – I’m going to Manchester to study Architecture and Abi’s doing Law in Keele.
That’s the plan anyway, assuming we don’t decide we love it so much travelling that we’re not coming home!
