The Thailand Experience is legendary around these parts, and when the lovely Ollie, a guy who works for our sister company JCA wanted to jump on board, it was an offer we couldn't refuse. Last month he headed out on an adventure of a lifetime, so when he got back (and admittedly, was a little depressed to be sitting back at a desk rather than on the beach) - we thought we'd ask him how he got on.

HEY THERE, BEAUT. We've been wanting to suss you out for ages, but it just didn't seem possible. You were too 'out there'. Too undiscovered. But now, it's time.
We're so excited to launch our brand new adventures, especially as it's been a firm country favourite of the Real Gap Experience team for absolute donkeys (you can barely shut Louisa up about her time out there. It's properly runs deep, y'know?)
So after a bit of badgering, a bit of investigating and after spending months...Read More

Hey everyone I’m Arron!
I’m here to tell you all about the brand new Cambodia Experience that is happening right now! But before I do, let me tell you a little bit about myself...
I have lived in the sunny city of Leicester for most of my life. It’s a great place with a lot going on, but it’s very rarely going to suppress the adventurer in you, if you know what I mean?
I stumbled across Real Gap in 2010 whilst browsing for trips to USA online, like so many of us, I needed something to get...Read More

We feel your pain, solo traveller. It's pretty nerve racking travelling on your own for the first time, but rest assured there IS light on the other side - a very bright one! There's so many amazing things you can learn about yourself and others when you travel solo, and the best part is that Real Gap Experience is made up of approx 84% of go-it-alone travellers which means you'll always make other mates abroad!
Need some convincing? Here's why we think you should travel solo:
You make new...Read More
Sophie has just come back from a trip of a lifetime. Not only did she get to explore Thailand from top to bottom (in a whirlwind two weeks!) but she also got to sneak in a bit of time in the legendary Cambodia too.

Travelling ruins your life. Why? Because it just makes everything at home seem too damn boring.
Travelling, we love to hate you. Why?!
1) Porridge vs pad thai. With lumps and bumps in all the wrong places, we know what we'd rather be eating; spices n' all.
2) Even when the sun shines in the UK (which let's face it, isn't now) it's never as bright as it is in Thailand. F***.
3) We love feeling sand inbetween our toes, not murky puddles that have leaked into our favourite boots. Soggy feet ain't...
