    Should I go to university or travel as a nomad?

    I agree 100% with the first answer from Pearse. I would add that educational credentials are often not much use outside of the country where you earnt them, as local employers elsewhere don't know the university (unless it's a household name worldwide, like Oxford or Cambridge...a less well-known one, even if it is better regarded in your chosen field, will still be a hard sell to a foreign employer). If I were in your shoes I would use that gap year to do some travel and see for yourself, first hand, what you need to get the most out of further travels. I would certainly not encourage you to study "for the sake of it." I did that, to please misguided parents, and wasted years getting a degree which was worse than useless as it taught me to think in a way which was contrary to what I needed for the things I really wanted to be doing with my life. about 1 year ago
