Amar was born and raised in England, UK, and sadly didn’t catch his bout of wanderlust until his early twenties.
Playing catch up, Amar embarked on an 11 country round the world gap year after graduation and then become well and truly hooked. The first gap year inspired a second which ended up being a 23 country down-the-world trip from Canada to Antarctica.
Since then Amar has endeavoured to turn his gap year into a ‘gap life’ and has spent the last 8 years traveling the 7 continents. He has also lived in places such as Australia, Colombia, Costa Rica and Mexico.
Amar’s travel experiences started off in the humble roots of budget and backpacker travel but as he’s matured so have his tastes (whilst still looking for a deal!). Now he wants the finer things in travel such as a bed or cabin on his flights; and that’s where his passion for points developed.
Amar holds a BS in Management & Strategy from Aston University, still runs the travel website GapYearEscape.com and has been featured on or contributes to many top tier publications such as Lonely Planet, Vogue TIME, Business Insider and Entrepreneur.
