My name is Anna Thomassen and I am a 18 year old girl who will be taking a gap year this upcoming year, 2014/15.
I am norwegian (and proud), but I have lived in Luxembourg for the last 13 years, where I have attended the International School of Luxembourg. Before (hopefully) starting to study medicine at university I wanted to do some learning outside textbooks and explore “the world”. I am not traveling the world in 80 days, but i will visit Cape Town, South Africa and Grenada, an island in the Caribbean. I will stay at each place for 3 months each and after that – we’ll see! At each place I will be doing voluntary work; in Cape Town I will work at an orphanage and in Grenada I will volunteer for the Jason Roberts Foundation.
I’ll be updating regularly to keep family and friends updated with my travels!
Stay tuned as the South Africans like to say,
