Yes of course! I think if it's something you'd like to do then having a gap year is a really great idea. I ended up taking a year out after my A-Levels due to the pandemic but I'm actually so glad I did anyway as it's given me some time to unwind after years of studying and allowed myself the time to really think about what it is I want to do in the future. As it seems you already have an idea of what you'd like to do during your year out I personally think it would be a really nice experience if you don't mind taking time away from your studies. I wish you so much luck with whatever you decided to do!!

If you can afford it, do it. I wish I had the money to do it, I just worked all through school, college and uni. But I hope to travel some more next year.
