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.

Why do you choose do go on the Thailand Experience?
 
I’ve always wanted to travel to South East...

Laura: What To Expect From Life in Fiji

Want to live on a desert island? Wake up to the sound of sassy waves, kick back in a bure for a week and sample the South Pacific life? (Nope, this is not a trick question. I REPEAT, THIS ACTUALLY EXISTS).
 
Somehow I jammily managed to take eight weeks off to travel solo around the world (hey what can I say, it's one of the perks of working for a gap year company!) and after making my way around Asia for two weeks - which truthfully, mainly involved stroking elephants, wolfing down pad thai...
