Katie Mousley - Season2Season 2011
"I was first introduced to Ticket to Ride when they visited our Gap year fair at college in 2009. I met with will and knew straight away this was the package I wanted to do for my year out. I had always wanted to do a ski season in my gap year and combining it with a surf course looked fantastic! It cost hardly anything more and I got double the experience.

"The season2season package started with a cookery course held by natives. It was a fantastic week where I met lots of new friends, learnt new skills and gained confidence in my cooking. I was then helped by natives to apply for jobs and was offered a job in Courchevel as a hotel assistant. With this in mind I was amped to get out to South Africa and enjoy the first part of my trip.

"South Africa was incredible! Words can’t describe the amount of fun I had with the most fantastic people. I felt because we were led on an organised trip by locals I got the most out of the country and really experience Africa. The fantastic thing about Ticket to Rides’ trips is that you don’t only get to surf in the most beautiful and exciting places in the world but also work with local townships, skydive, bungee jump, safari and the most memorable moment was staying with a African family for the night. It was a once in a lifetime experience that not many people will get to do and thanks to Ticket to Ride I was able to.

"Leaving South Africa was upsetting as it felt like the end of an era but I was lucky in the sense that I still have 5 months to look forward to living on a mountain!

"As I was working whilst on the mountain it wasn’t the same experience as South Africa but I still an incredible time. I worked hard and played hard leading to me meeting lifelong friends, gaining independence and also improving my skiing to a high level.

"I would not change anything about my gap year. It was perfect. I was able to learn how to surf from scratch, make life long friends, experience things I never thought I would, gain lifeguard qualifications that I hope to use in the future and I became a lot more independent which will be vital as I am off  to university soon so I need to start growing up!!!

"I would recommend the season2season package to anybody who doesn’t mind working hard to experience an amazing 8 months in 2 completely different places. You will  come out at the end of this trip with new skills, new friends and a lot of fantastic memories."
