Giel van Weezel
Gap Year: Green River to Australia/New Zealand
"My Gap Year showed me a lot of what the world has to offer. I am really glad I got the opportunity to see three very different countries in one year, all three with vastly different cultures. I would highly recommend a gap year like mine to anyone who would want to see more of the world while you’re still young."
