About

Welcome to the home of Gap Year Pins. A website created by travellers, for travellers...

We love to travel and can regularly be found backpacks in hand, heading off in search of new adventures. From holidays, to career breaks, we try and get away as often as we can, exploring the world and experiencing new cultures, food, music and destinations.

Explore the blog to find out about some of our recent trips, favourite destinations, great gay travel destinations, top tips for travelling and more.

Your Big Adventure!

Your Big Adventure! Order Now! We love sharing tips and information about destinations, festivals and events, LGBT+ travel, different ways of travelling and our experiences both as backpackers and gay travellers. In the blog you'll find write-ups of many of the places we've visited, as well as some top tips for travel.

However, if you're planning on taking a longer trip and aren't sure where to start with planning, budgeting, booking accommodation or transport, then we've written a step-by-step guide, which is available as an eBook.

Your Big Adventure is full of useful information to help you prepare for backpacking, a gap-year or extended break. It contains tips from all our travels, as well as some of the big things you'll need to think about, and that all-important packing list!

Available from Amazon, it's priced at just 99p!
