Lisa - Head of Sales and Customer Operations
I've been at Real Gap Experience since: November 2006. I’ve worked for the Daily Express, BBC and an online DVD seller over the years but Real Gap Experience is by far the BEST company I’ve ever worked for. I love the buzz of the place, my colleagues and most importantly, the amazing adventures we help send thousands of travellers on each year.
I've visited: 26 countries
I’ve visited: 22 countries
My favourite place in the world is: That's a tough one…seeing the Big 5 at Kruger National Park, dancing to African music at the
Bushfire festival in Swaziland and
playing some football with the kids
in Tofo/ Mozambique was incredible.
My favourite ‘once in a lifetime’ travel moment was when: our guide in Kruger National Park shouted “lions, lions” and stopped the car. I turned around and saw six/seven lions right next to me…one of them was looking at me right in the eyes!
Chris - Travel Specialist
mansion, also spots to go caving….
I’ve visited: 13 countries
My favourite place in the world: Laos, Luang Prabang. Definitely my second home!
My favourite ‘once in a lifetime’ travel moment was: Landing on a dirt track runway in a tiny little aeroplane in Laos. Walking out the airport to what would become my home for the next three months. Proper adventure!
Top travel tip: Embrace the fear! Those things you’re not sure if you’re brave to do will end up being
the best things you ever do!
I’ve been at Real Gap Experience since: October 2014
My favourite place in the world is: Kerala, South India
My favourite ‘once in a lifetime’ travel moment was when: Kayaking down the most incredible (and terrifying) rapids on the White Nile, Uganda! An amazing river in a beautiful country! We would watch the sunset from the island in the middle of the river where we were camping, with the noise of the rapids in the background, monkeys in the trees and sipping on a cold Nile Special beer – amazing!
Top tip: SMILE – it’s internationally understood! Make the most of every opportunity you have and treat every day as an adventure!
