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...

#YOLO Americano!

We like offering a discount or three here at Real Gap, so we've decided to add the Americas along to our offer-ranks. Cheers! #YOLO

Join our ‘Best of Argentina and Brazil’ tour and you’ll be able to conquer Rio, explore the beauty that is Brazil and tango your way along the cosmopolitan streets of Buenos Aires. Why aren't we over there again?

If like...

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...

Just as Guy attempted to blow the Houses Parliament up all those years ago, Bangkok does one better as the party capital of Thailand- it’ll blow your mind! As a part of Real Gap’s Thailand experience, get a taster...

Languages: Simple, serious or scary?

 

As a part of our Real Gap spooky spectacular, we're talking about things that have scared the pants off of us Real Gappers. In this particular chapter, we're going back to school and putting on our bilingual hats...

We all remember it well. School, lessons, taking a language. Becoming terrified of *said* language. Revising our bums off to achieve a half decent grade in *that* language. Chewing our pen lids to pieces in *those* classes. It felt difficult. We felt intimidated.

But after weeks...

We've gotten all rotten...

Nerves of steel? Brave beyond belief? If the thought of ghosts and ghouls sends you into a laughing fit (cheers, Casper...) then it’s time you became acquainted with Real Gap’s activity list of doom*. Ditch the Halloween costumes, and have a look at our terrifying trips. Swimming with white sharks, anyone?

Mozambique Whale Shark Conservation

If the thought of Jaws sent shivers down your spine as a wee nipper, then (duh-na, duh-na, duh-na) this is the real thing! As a part of an epic...

Freaky Festivals

Today's post marks the start of our ever so spooky Halloween week here at the Real Gap office. Ooooooo!

Remember those parties you used to go to when you were five? You donned the witch’s hat, ate too much candy, and probably ran around screaming ‘TRICK OR TREAT’ in people’s ear holes whilst gasping through vampire teeth? Well scrap that (those memories scar us anyway…) and have a look at these freaky festivals from around the world. But beware; if you’re a wuss then this is not for you,...

The Time Has Come...

Hundreds entered, but only a handful succeeded! We don't like to blow our own trumpets here at UYO, but our prize is one heck of a prize, and as expected we had video applications galore begging to be taken on a whirlwind of an adventure around the world. Aus, America, Asia, South Africa- what's not to like?!

The UYO team have now selected the final thirteen (unlucky for some, but extremely so for them!) and it's now the time that we ask you, our adoring public, to submit your vote and in...
