Gap Year in Europe

Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area, covering about 10,400,000 square kilometres (4,010,000 sq mi) or 2.0% of the Earth's surface. The only continent smaller than Europe is Australia. In terms of population, it is the third-largest continent (after Asia and Africa) with a population of some 710,000,000 or about 11% of the world's population. The massive variety of Europe and deep rooted and fascinating blend of cultures make it a great place to spend time travelling. There are hundreds of possibilities and thanks to the cheap airlines Europe is cheaply accessible from the UK. But don't forget to check out your InterRail options as well.
