Frankie’s Gap Year in Fiji
“I just wanted to do something I would never forget” Frankie, gap year in 2013.

Frankie was working in London and wanted to volunteer abroad and do something useful whilst having an adventure. Her friend told her to look into Fiji and she stumbled across Think Pacific.

The Fiji Gap Year Professionals

Our own gap years to Fiji quite simply changed our lives. We’ve been exploring this remote island paradise ever since. You could say we’re the Pacific professionals, the specialists of the South Seas, the connoisseurs of castaway island life! Over the past decade we’ve been privileged to support thousands of gap year students to follow in our footsteps to Fiji. We first went to Fiji with a big international gap year organisation.  Something didn’t quite sit right and when the time came to launch Think Pacific, we knew the ethos and culture we wanted to create –  Small, personal, supportive, focused only upon Fiji and hugely beneficial for Fiji.  Think Pacific is a gap year program created by  gap year students – the program we wish we could have done at 19.  It has all our expertise, passion and knowledge, and we believe it’s the best gap year project in Fiji, if not the world.
