This site is dedicated to you taking your own family gap year.

We believe children should be unleashed onto the world from a young age. The world is a classroom - like taking a hike up a volcano to study plate tectonics, or visiting roman ruins in Turkey, or studying how religions evolved in the temples and mosques of India.

But where to start? There's often so much to think about that we push it aside, thinking it's something for other luckier families.

We're on our own family gap year through India for six months. Our kids are 11, 9 and 7 and we'll be sharing anecdotes from our own journey to inspire you to take action. Many other families are taking their children on a 3-12 month trip of a lifetime too. This site is dedicated to helping families create, plan and go on their only family gap year.

Sign up here and receive tips, inspiration and advice to make your own family gap year a reality.

'Every human on earth is an explorer. Exploring is nothing more than the paying of attention, writ large. ATTENTION. That's what the world asks of you. If you pay ferocious attention to the world, you will be as safe as it is possible to be.' - from 'The Explorer' by Katherine Rundell
