So, you've finished university and now it's time to see the world before you settle down into the world of nine to five. Finally, you have time - and hopefully the savings - to see the rain fall in Africa, the snow flurries of Alaska and the misty falls of Niagara or just about any other sight you've dreamed of laying your eyes on.
However, if your parents in Plymouth haven't got the room to store all of the items you somehow accumulated while in university, you're forced to deal with a difficult problem. It's undoubted that some of your belongings will be too important to throw out or sell - like your laptop and sentimental possessions - so what can you do with them?
There are plenty of solutions available, such as using some of the storage space available for hire in Plymouth instead. Self storage can be a surprisingly cheap venture that means all of your important belongings are kept in a safe and secure environment ready to be picked up when you come back. You can get a storage unit big enough to hold any number of items of furniture and whatever else you own and relax in the knowledge that your clothes and possessions will be stored safely until you return.
That way you can focus on the important stuff - the travelling. Wherever you're going to go, it's no secret that the year out for travel is one of the most incredible years of any graduate's life. So whether you want to explore the dusty outback of Australia, the sights and tantalising aromas of India or travel across Europe and take in the breathtaking diversity of cultures, languages and landscapes, you're guaranteed to have a memorable time that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
Walk through the streets of Hong Kong, eat real sushi in Japan and ride on the back of a camel on an exciting adventure by the pyramids of Egypt - there's so much choice that a year probably won't be enough time to do everything you want.
However, at least you'll be able to relax whilst travelling because your belongings are all safe and secure, packed away in storage in Plymouth - meaning that while you're exploring Italian culture or skiing the slopes of Canada, you'll have everything to come home to once it's all over.
