We’re all serious travelholics here in the Real Gap office. Last week RG’s Hannah got back from touring around Sri Lanka, Alex had been sunning it up in Cape Verde, Nicky was city breaking in the glamorous New York and on Monday Rob landed back in the UK from Cape Town. Trust us, it’s hard to keep track of where we’re all off to!
Since last May I’ve been counting down my massive trip to Australia. It’s always felt like a bit of a dream and frankly, a bit out of my league (how do I get that...Read More
Looking to do something completely out of your comfort zone this year? (Yep, us too!). Life can get a little dry without a bit of adventure, and travelling is all about packing those incredible experiences under your belt and ‘really’ seeing the world!
Adventure, we smelt you a mile off! Check out these wicked adventures that we think YOU should try this year…
Climb the Great Wall of China: Marked as one of the seven New Wonders of the world, the Great Wall of a China is a massive must for any...Read More
Here at Team RG we're one happy bunch, and to celebrate International Happiness Day we thought we'd dig deep and see what's made some of our fabulous team happy, travel highlight styley!
Lisa, Sales and Customer Operations Manager: Stumbling across a wedding in Cambodia where the whole street had been blocked off for the celebrations. We stuck are heads in and next minute we were being twirled round the dance floor and plied with beer by the friendly wedding guests. At the end of the evening...Read More
When RG's Head of Marketing Will headed to Ghana to visit our projects, he had a fantastic time! It's official: the kid's in Ghana are the nicest, ever!
After tough negotiating with BA staff to get an upgrade on my seat (extra leg room only before you get ahead of yourself) I found my seat only to be confronted by a Ghanaian lady holding a tiny child! Penance for being difficult I here you say - very possibly, very possibly.
However, 6.5 hours later I now have a new best friend in Accra and a...Read More
Thinking about doing something incredible this year? Here at RG we love getting our teeth stuck into a new challenge and three of us have completed the Kilimanjaro climb. RG's Sophie is now planning on hitting Everest Base Camp too! So, when @LeighannJordan asked us for some advice for her trek up to Everest BC, we thought we'd put together some hints and tips!
- Get yourself the best day pack that the world has ever seen! Inside, consider packing good waterproofs (not showerproof - but...Read More
We all know how hard it can be to choose your latest adventure. There's a whole world to choose from, and you wouldn't want to make a rash decision and end up in god knows where, would you?! We feel your pain #toughtimes
To sort you out, we reckon we should harness our combined travel genius and help guide you back on to the straight and narrow. First stop - South Africa!
Back in December, I went to South Africa for a good old fashioned adventure. IT WAS AMAZING. It was my first time in Africa...Read More
When this time rocks up each January, we don't half feel sorry for you lot doing your A-Levels. We know how you feel; your life as you know it is in serious limbo and frankly, deciding whether you want to go to uni or not can kindly shove off.
We know a load of you won't be sure as truthfully, most of us weren't 100% sold whether we wanted to go to uni either. Between the RG team we're split 50/50 with uni goers, so it's easy for us to argue the pros and cons; there are loads for both! As the...Read More
2013 has been a BIG year for Team RG. We’ve upped sticks and moved to the seaside, dominated Brighton with our nights out (soz, Brights) and have been travelling around left, right and centre to control our symptoms of ‘itchy feet’ #nofungusinvolvedpromise
As we’re all obsessed with travelling here in the Real Gap office, we thought we’d work out how many countries we’ve discovered between us this year and we’ve got to admit, we’re pretty impressed. Over the last 12 months we've conquered 40...Read More
