Where We've Been And Where We're Headed Next

If you've been following along with the blog the last few weeks, you'll know that my husband and I are on a cross-country roadtrip in promotion of the gap year. We started out in Portland, Oregon and I'm writing this from the Aloft Hotel in Austin, Texas. 

So far, the trip has been an incredible journey of unforgettable sights, meals and new friends. To recap our trajectory so far, we've traveled through: 

  • Portland, Oregon

  • The Hoover Dam
  • Flagstaff, Arizona
  • Phoenix, Arizona
  • The Grand Canyon

Along the way, we're talking all things gap year and highlighting the stories of gap year students, so if you have a tale to share, please email it our way!

We've also partnered up with Aloft Hotels and they're offering a 40% discount off any 2+ night stay through the end of the year for anyone taking a gap year. Super cool and a great way to keep costs down while you're traveling. You can book rooms at alofthotels.com/gapyear
