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.

NEW ZEALAND IS MAGNIFICENT.
And to show you all that the New Zealand Experience is one of the best adventures that the world has ever seen, here's 12 reasons why the place is a massive dreamboat/you should literally all go on this trip, now.
1) You haven't travelled until you've seen New Zealand
New Zealand is just.... perfect. We properly fangirl after it in the Real Gap office; half of us will say outright that it's our favourite country. Heck, RG's Louisa wants to move there, except.... she's...Read More
THE FUTURE. Together, these are probably the two scariest words in the world. Perhaps you didn't get the results you were after, or you aren't too sure where to go next? Either way, HELP IS AT HAND.
If you're thinking of travelling - but you aren't massively sure if you can do it just yet, here are the emotions that'll probably run through your head once you've booked your BRILLIANT gap year.
You'll think about it (and it'll hurt your brain a bit)
Your mate tells you travelling's the...Read More
As Nikki is brand new to the Real Gap Experience family, we decided to quiz her on her six months in South America, which she did last year. It's safe to say that all of us who haven't been to South America before are now desperate, and those that have want to go again!
Your biggest must do in South America?
The Inca Trail – spending 4 days trekking through cloud forests, sub-tropical forests and mountain landscapes was both physically and mentally tiring, but the views were absolutely...
Thailand is one of our favourite places in the whole wide world, so we thought we'd introduce you to a member of the RG team who makes trips like the Thailand Experience possible. It's time to meet Bee, one of our awesome guides!

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
Meet your new travelling companion…… your Bag!
This month we’ve partnered up with our mates at Nomad to give away a massive prize. Haven’t entered yet? Head here!
In the meantime, our pals at Nomad have written a blog post for us outlining their experiences. Thanks guys!
I have travelled and explored in many ways. With my partner, as part of an expedition, with friends. The list goes on but nothing compares to solo travel! It throws you head first into the culture of the host...Read More
For the last two and a half years, I’ve been the sarcy so n’ so who’s been sitting behind Facebook, telling you all to go travelling - chucking out inspirational quote after inspirational quote. ‘Go solo!’, I say. ‘Head here!’ I say. Except, I haven’t actually *done it* on my own. Yet.
I've always loved travelling, and since I rocked up at Real Gap Experience back in 2012 I’ve travelled to (deep breath): Australia, Borneo, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Japan, Morocco, Greece, Dubai, the US and...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
