    Hi I'm planning to take a gap year before studying geography at uni, and I've started to think of ideas, and so far I've got:
    Work from july to november
    Travelling in europe, including 2 weeks in spain learning Spanish, interrailing for 1 month ending in some kind of volunteering/work experience in France
    Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, probably with volunteering either in Peru or Galapagos Islands on a conservation project.
    Is this enough to fill out 15 months and make it worthwhile? Because I probably won't have a huge budget, and don't want to be travelling the whole time, but I can't really think of anything else to fill the gaps between each section...
    So any ideas or advice would be great, and I'd be interested to hear what other people have done for their gap years!
    Thanks in advance
