Meet Jess Glynn (The Irish Gap Year Guru)
At first you have no idea what has gotten into you… and you laughed at those people who said it was contagious. It takes total control of your body and soul, filling your mind with endless thoughts and questions that need answering.

Now that my 20′s have arrived, I cant help but feel like this is the time to explore, to adventure, to run wild! I am ready to go, I am ready to see and I have my camera charged so that I can report back on all of my travels!
Follow me as I discover some of the Worlds most incredible sights, along with the do’s and don’ts of travel! Here you will find out where to stay, where to eat, my most recommended places to visit etc – With plenty of hints and tips for your own Travel Adventures!
Meet Arua Tupinambas (Our Brazilian Gap Year Guru)
For my whole childhood I was just fascinated by maps, globes and geography books. I’ve always thought geography was my thing… Now I realise my real passion was travel. My dream is to go to all of the places I saw on those maps. I was (and I still am) curious. I want to know how people live differently around the world, I want to understand them, not only the people, but the country itself.
I have always had an incredible desire to live abroad. As I grew up that desire took over, and I decided to live in Ireland for one year studying English. (09/03/2012 – the date that changed my life! )
Living in Ireland was exactly what I was expecting, living on my own, learning so many different things every single day, meeting people from all over the world, making new friends, going out, drinking and learning. I was living the life!
When I met Jess, she showed me another side of living abroad. I was living the culture, doing things only Irish people do, meeting Irish people every day, I just fell in love! That was the first time I had ever felt that way, that was when the passion for traveling around the world grew inside me! The more you travel, the more you realized, that’s just the beginning.
