Does it sound like a cliche? Perhaps but they become so for a reason. Taking time out from studying is a good way of figuring out what you really want to do with your life and prevent yourself from following in someone elses footsteps rather than making your own. Pave your own path and volunteer abroad gaining valuable skills that can open the doors to a world of new opportunities. So what are you waiting for?

Itinerary

Step one Fly to Sydney

The CV Classic Go Gap package kicks off in style with a FREE lounge pass courtesy of Escape followed by the long flight from London Stansed to Sydney. This takes at least 22 hours with a stop in Dubai giving you plenty of time to enjoy Emirates onboard entertainment before you touch down in Australia.

Step two Sydney and surrounds

If you choose to arrive in Sydney a few days before your first organised tour of the trip you can spend some time getting your bearings and exploring this amazing city at your own pace. You might head straight for hotspots like Sydney Opera House and Bondi Beach or spend some time checking out the thriving coffee and bar scene and getting to know the place. The choice is yours.

Step four Cairns and surrounds

Next up you have a couple of days to enjoy Cairns and the stunning surrounding area. Blessed with picture perfect coastline and beaches you might spend your time relaxing on the beach or you can head outside the city limits to visit Daintree National Park to experience more of Australia s wilderness or Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park to learn more about the history of the area.

Step five Fly to Nadi Fiji

When you re finished in Australia it s time to fly to Nadi on Fiji s main island. The flight takes around seven hours giving you plenty of time to recuperate before landing in Fiji.

Step seven Fly to Auckland New Zealand

When you re finished in Fiji it s time to fly to Auckland on New Zealand s North Island. The non stop flight only takes around three hours so you won t lose too much time in the air.
