"I'm on a gap year at age 31 - it's never too late to travel"

A woman is taking a solo gap year at the age of 31 - and wants to "break" the "expectation" that it's too late. India Jolly had always wanted to travel around south east Asia but every time she had the savings to go she ended up going back to university to study instead. She realised her short attention span was a symptom of ADHD, after seeing other women talking about it on TikTok, and was officially diagnosed in August 2022. After taking a fixed term maternity cover job as a curator at a museum she used the opportunity to save to travel and booked her flights before she could change her mind. India saved £11,000 for the trip and jetted off to Bangkok, Thailand, in June 2024.
