It's January. We're all a bit down; it's wet and it's grey and we want to get away. So, what should you do next? Book a big trip and escape the doom and gloom, that's what!

We've scoured through our best trips for this time of year to show you where you could be! Ditch the UK and say 'HELLO' to the world!

1) Thailand- I don't think we even need to explain why Thailand is completely awesome. It's scorching hot, exotic, there's cheap everything (cough- drinks, cough) and the Thailand Experience...

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...

Traditional, mystical, unique, exciting: if you’re looking to really get away from the grey UK then set your camera to stun and head for one of the most colourful and vibrant countries on the planet.

Traveller Tales - Nina's India Experience

 

As I stepped out of the airport into the thick Indian air, I was immediately covered in sweat, even though it was six in the morning. I was met by my RealGap representative, Amit, who was going to be my guide for the next month. We shook hands and he was very polite, as I would soon find out, most Indians are. He took my bags, loaded them into the car and we were off, into the bustling streets and crazy traffic of Delhi. Swerving between tuk tuks, mopeds and cows trying to cross the street;...

But this is what you signed up for, right? And bravely you find your way past the hawkers, gawkers and squawkers as your adventure begins and your Thailand experience begins to take root.
