A friend of mine took a gap year a couple years back and when he returned from all his travels he said one of the most amazing parts of the world was the Oceania. When I began to think about taking a gap year, his stories from the Oceania inspired me to think about traveling in that area.
Later in the year, Grabatour Travel visited my school and they were promoting their trips in Southeast Asia and Oceania. When I saw that they had an organized trip to Oz, I decided it was something I should seriously consider.
Since it would be my first time in Oz, I felt going through an organized program and going with other people around my age would be a good idea.
I ended up talking to a couple friends of mine who had experience with Grabatour Travel and I never heard one downside to the program. In fact, some of my friends are even planning to try and work for the program fairly soon.
After being quickly convinced it was a tour I would enjoy, I made a booking and later found myself in some of the most amazing parts of the world with some of the greatest people I've ever met.
