Have you taken a microgap yet? It’s the latest travel trend for young people who want amazing adventures and once in a lifetime experiences over just two or three days. It’s about realising that you can embrace the exotic, find yourself or tick something off your bucket list right here in the UK. Use your microgap to take some time out, learn a new skill, discover a different culture or achieve something that you never thought possible. Microgappers are seeking out the best of what’s on their doorstep and a little bit further afield.
In England, you can get anywhere and everywhere in a day. Tomorrow you could be learning to surf next to golden sands, climbing a mountain, going solo at a supper club or sipping crazy Caribbean cocktails. You’re allowed to be totally spontaneous - your next adventure can start right now. No excuses.
Planning an adventure in the UK is easy but that doesn’t mean that the challenge can’t be hard. You can find remote and rugged places, wild swim like a mermaid, meet interesting people everywhere and push yourself to your limits (if that’s your bag). The beauty is that anything can be your next adventure and it can happen soon.
The UK has plenty of home-grown culinary delights but we’ve also totally embraced the rest of the world’s flavours. You can find the finest of foods inspired by countries from every letter of the alphabet (which isn’t a bad idea for a microgap!). Find out how to forage, go on a road trip to track down Britain’s best doughnut, scream for ice cream or get your coffee fix.
Imagine if this weekend you learnt to paddleboard like a pro or find your inner graffiti artist. It’s totally possible. Don’t waste another weekend watching TV when you could be out there microgapping and doing whatever you put your mind to. Not only will your new found skills seriously impress your mates, but they’ll also look great when you’re going for a new job.
Clear your mind, energise your body and focus on wellness - something that you can never spend too much time on. Take on a hiking challenge to get yourself physically and mentally fit, have a digital detox reconnecting with nature in the beautiful countryside or lap up some luxury in out of this world spas with cliff edge hot tubs and skyline swimming pools.
