This book does offer advice and insight into travel for us grown-ups. It covers all the relevant aspects that one would need to think of and gives plenty of food for thought.

I bought this on the basis that it would give me some ideas for my round-the-world trip. But it doesn't really. It's mainly about secular volunteering agencies. If that is what you want, this will give you a load of bibliography. It's also big on how to negotiate time off work, and things like that.

When you're a 'grown up', taking a gap year is not a decision to take lightly. "Gap Years for Grown ups" seems to be a very interesting book for all ages of people who want to deviate radically from their daily routine! The book provides a lot of advice, ideas and contacts to quickly get to grips with taking a gap year, and all the continents are considered.

Reading this guide makes me feel like doing a gap year: it looks like it would be throroughly rewarding.
