So, what is a Microgap? The gap year is a rite of passage for those leaving higher education, as well as those in their 20s and 30s taking career breaks. But what if you could enjoy the richness of experiences and developmental opportunities offered on a traditional gap year – in England, without having to quit the day job by ‘Microgapping’?
Content creators explored the following locations in England:
Sheffield - 'Go Wild'
There’s nothing quite like the exhilaration that comes with pushing yourself to the limit. Discover adrenaline-pumping activities on an adventure break in the UK.
As part of their Microgap trip, creators took to the water and were guided around the city of Sheffield by paddle board. Seeing the sights from a very different perspective.
Bristol - 'Learn More'
Get hands on and master a new skill, or improve on an already existing one. There are plenty of ways to travel and learn, or even find a new hobby.
Creator attendees learned more about Bristol from a different perspective on a unique graffiti tour around the city, followed by a gin masterclass.
Brighton - 'Switch Off'
Everybody needs to hit the pause button every now and again. Take some time to unwind, reflect and focus on yourself
After a walking tour of Brighton, the Microgap attendees switched off for the afternoon with a yoga class, followed by a sauna session on the beach and a very quick dip into the sea.
Margate - 'Give Back'
Do something positive and create unforgettable memories at the same time. Combine travelling the UK with weekend volunteering, charity trips and sustainable experiences to improve the world around you.
For the Margate trip, the group was split in two. Half began the day with an upcycling fashion workshop in a local studio while the rest of the group took part in a beach clean up, swapping over after lunch.
