Where will you be visiting this year?

We reckon booking a trip of a lifetime at the start of the year is the best time to do so. Why, we hear you cry? Well…

  1. You can get really, really excited for months- and then be fit to burst before you go!
  2. There’s something to look forward to early on; we like having a drive to power us through
  3. The Real Gap sale is on, so things are as cheap as chips!

So, what do you reckon Real Gappers? Do you like booking your trips at the start of the year too?

Languages: Simple, serious or scary?

 

As a part of our Real Gap spooky spectacular, we're talking about things that have scared the pants off of us Real Gappers. In this particular chapter, we're going back to school and putting on our bilingual hats...

We all remember it well. School, lessons, taking a language. Becoming terrified of *said* language. Revising our bums off to achieve a half decent grade in *that* language. Chewing our pen lids to pieces in *those* classes. It felt difficult. We felt intimidated.

But after weeks...

Freaky Festivals

Today's post marks the start of our ever so spooky Halloween week here at the Real Gap office. Ooooooo!

Remember those parties you used to go to when you were five?

Well scrap that (those memories scar us anyway…) and have a look at these freaky festivals from around the world. But beware; if you’re a wuss then this is not for you,...

Building a Positive Future

This morning, travel advisor Tom came bounding into the office, full of excitement. “It’s done, it’s done!” he called to us all as he ran around the office showing off a photo of a library.

But this wasn’t just any library. In fact, this was the library for which Tom had laid the foundations only a few months before as part of a volunteering trip he went on with Real Gap. And now the library is finished and he takes great pride in the fact that he helped to make that...
