About Meet, Plan, Go

Despite being common in many countries such as Australia and the UK, career breaks, life sabbaticals, “gap years” and other forms of extended travel are not currently a Yankee birthright…but the Founders of Meet, Plan, Go! are on a mission to change that!

For years, books like Vagabonding by Rolf Potts and Tales of a Female Nomad by Rita Golden Gelman have inspired countless readers across the country to break out of their routine and travel the world. Then in 2006, Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir Eat, Pray, Love exploded onto the literary scene, becoming a runaway hit and opening up a wider conversation about Americans and long-term travel experiences. Many people found themselves waking up and asking, “Wait a minute…why haven’t I ever taken time off? Where is MY gap year?!” Sound familiar? You’re not alone…
