Dave is Real Gap's very own stick of digital dynamite. His love of online is only matched by his passion for fast cars and loose women...oh no, wait a minute that's James Bond. He does love travel though and has gone round the world seeing and doing some awesome stuff. Highlights include climbing Kilimanjaro (which he never shuts up about), the incredible scuba diving off Roatan in Honduras, face to face encounters with Komodo dragons and karaoke sing offs in dodgy Thai nightclubs. You can follow his travel ramblings on the Real Gap Twitter feed or find him on Google+
