Why We LOVE America: Top 5

Seeing as though Americans across the board will be getting their Thanksgiving on tomorrow, we thought we'd tell all of you Real Gappers why we're thankful for the USA!

Fast Food, Drive Thrus and Starbucks: Here at Real Gap, our lives seem to constantly revolve around searching for our next meal. The thought of not having McDonalds, KFC and Burger King on the menu sends us into a cold state of shock (although admittedly, we don't have them too often as they're pretty unhealthy, and a balanced...

LA, the place to be!

We love the USA. End of. To celebrate our love for the nation of our dreams, we've put together a crafty little list of our favourite hotspots in Los Angeles:

Santa Monica Pier: Full to the brim with fun and games, arcade attractions and amazing views of the beach and beyond, Santa Monica’s pier is definitely worth a visit whilst you’re in LA. If you're lookign to pick up a cheeky tan too, then this is definitely the place to be!

Getty Museum: The word ‘museum’ would usually bore us all to...

Thanksgiving Week- Part 1!

Thanksgiving is one of the biggest celebrations in the US, and most people in the UK know diddly squat about the occasion. Apart from the fact that we should be ‘thankful’ our knowledge didn’t stretch much further... until today that is! To celebrate in style we’ve decided to declare this week as ‘Thanksgiving Week’ on the Real Gap blog- expect place profiles, US facts and tonnes of good ole US goodness, Real Gappers!

To kick off Thanksgiving week, we’re going to be filling you in on the ins...

It's time for Africa!

If you're a regular reader of the Real Gap blog (and if you're not, you're positively crazy...) we've been dishing out discounts galore over the last few weeks. Not only have we slashed the prices on trips to Asia and the Americas, but it's now time to add the third A to the crazy sale team- Africa!

One of our star Real Gappers, Danielle (as pictured in the photos) is an African obsessive, and for good reason too. She toured all over the continent for three months in July, and she's come back...

We have our Ultimate Year Out Winners...

In true X Factor style-y, we thought we'd make our UYO competition a tad dramatic (just a tad, mind. We're no Dermot O' Leary!).

After being whittled down from 13 to three, we had a fantastic selection of videos to choose from. After all, the winner was guaranteed to win the 'ultimate year out' with us- exploring the highs and lows of Australia, the US, Thailand and Fiji... basically one hell of an adventure! Book us a ticket too, please?

After hours of...

BANG-kok

We all love an occasion here at Real Gap, and today is one of our personal favourite's- Bonfire Night! To match the fiery nature of the big day, we wanted to show you a city with bags of passion and attitude; a place that could hardly be referred to as the 'shy and retiring' type...
