Coming Back From A Big Trip

As you may have seen on Twitter, Real Gap travelled around Asia just after Christmas. We had a FANTASTIC time! But what's it like coming back from adventures galore to the daily 9/5 afterwards? Hard!

Stewing on a sunbed on the last day of your summer holiday is the worst thing ever. 'I have to go back to normal life now' we all think as we relax in the last of our 30 degree spree and sup on our tropical cocktail. Times that by ten and that's what it's like coming home from a trip which has...

Where will you be visiting this year?

We reckon booking a trip of a lifetime at the start of the year is the best time to do so. Why, we hear you cry? Well…

  2. There’s something to look forward to early on; we like having a drive to power us through
  3. The Real Gap sale is on, so things are as cheap as chips!

So, what do you reckon Real Gappers? Do you like booking your trips at the start of the year too?

Happy New Year!

Real Gappers, this is a serious one. We’ve always found New Year’s resolutions really tricky, as frankly we never keep them, and this year we’ve asked around the office to see what all of our New Year’s resolutions are…

  • Drink less tea and more water
  • Bring packed lunch instead of buying it (to save those all-important pennies for travelling!)
  • Lose weight/get fitter (although we say this every year :-/)
  • Rachel's personal resolution - hit "30 countries before 30" - 5 to go before June!
  • Complete TEFL...

Elephants in Namibia!

We've just been sent some fantastic snaps from our Real Gappers in Namibia, and we couldn't NOT share these beauties with you all! (It would've been the crime of '12!)

On our desert Elephant conservation project in Namibia, travellers get the opportunity to track the elephants so working within close promixity to one of our favourite animals is a given! We've become particularly smitten with the photo of the littlen on the left too; he's a serious cutie!

It's currently 32c in Windhoek,...
