We’re all serious travelholics here in the Real Gap office. Last week RG’s Hannah got back from touring around Sri Lanka, Alex had been sunning it up in Cape Verde, Nicky was city breaking in the glamorous New York and on Monday Rob landed back in the UK from Cape Town. Trust us, it’s hard to keep track of where we’re all off to!
Since last May I’ve been counting down my massive trip to Australia. It’s always felt like a bit of a dream and frankly, a bit out of my league (how do I get that...Read More

It's definitely one of the highlights of my trip so far. Even though, I think that about almost everywhere I've been so far!
Here at Team RG we're one happy bunch, and to celebrate International Happiness Day we thought we'd dig deep and see what's made some of our fabulous team happy, travel highlight styley!
Lisa, Sales and Customer Operations Manager: Stumbling across a wedding in Cambodia where the whole street had been blocked off for the celebrations. We stuck are heads in and next minute we were being twirled round the dance floor and plied with beer by the friendly wedding guests. At the end of the evening...Read More
When RG's Head of Marketing Will headed to Ghana to visit our projects, he had a fantastic time! It's official: the kid's in Ghana are the nicest, ever!
After tough negotiating with BA staff to get an upgrade on my seat (extra leg room only before you get ahead of yourself) I found my seat only to be confronted by a Ghanaian lady holding a tiny child! Penance for being difficult I here you say - very possibly, very possibly.
However, 6.5 hours later I now have a new best friend in Accra and a...Read More
