Seven Ways a Year of Travel helped my Business

Taking a ‘gap year’ can have surprising benefits
By Claire-Louise Price

Over the past year I have had the opportunity to take a ‘gap year’ – when I was a student they hadn’t even been invented! I visited eight countries separately, for the first time going it alone, without family or friends.

I travelled to Portugal, Madeira, South Africa, Antigua, Sicily, France, Greece and Cyprus, returning to the UK after each adventure. In every country I joined an activity group for at least part of the time.

So how did all this travel help my business? The answer is that I discovered not only more about new lands and cultures but also more about myself.
