Hi everyone, it's Melissa and Becky here! After our volunteering stint in Surin, we decided to get some much needed R&R in the Thai Islands.
There's quite a lot to chose from, so we thought we'd give you a run down of what's what!
We headed to Phuket first, which is the largest of the islands, and the craziest we visited! What we thought was a nice relaxing beach retreat, soon changed, thanks to the rain. Instead, we tested out a few of the many bars and restaurants in the never ending 'party...Read More
To all of you younger whippersnappers, it's come around to that time of year again. You're either starting your first week or uni (and hopefully loving it!) or thinking of applying for next year, and we appreciate it's a massive decision for anybody.

In the day we checked out...Read More
Fancy getting your mitts around our branding? Creating emails, designing t-shirts, website creative and much much more?
We're looking for an awesome designer to join our team! Wahay! The job will be situated in Kingston with the rest of the RG marketing team, and you'll be working across not one but five brands- so this really is an opportunity you cannot afford to miss.
Interested in travel? Even better! You don't have to be a travel guru by any means, but if you've seen a bit of the world...Read More
Now their 'Ultimate Year Out' has officially begun, Melissa and Becky have kindly updated us on their first few days in the buzzin' Bangkok. We must admit, back in Real Gap HQ we're very jealous! Here's how they're getting along so far on their adventure...
