USA Experience - part 2

Here's the next installment of the antics that go on when you take part in the USA Experience :-)

Day 5

We're off to the wonder that is the Grand Canyon! After a short-ish drive we all put pillowcases on our heads or other forms of blindfolds on and got walked to the edge so we could have an uninterrupted first look at the canyon, and it was fantastic!! One of the best things I've ever seen!

We got to camp and set up the tents then got ready for a walk round the canyon. Be warned, it gets very...

Group vs Solo travel

Hey everyone! We are nearing the end of our amazing trip now, finishing off in the Big Apple. Looking back over our travels we have met hundreds of people and made some awesomee freinds. During the trip we have travelled as a pair, as a large group and also individually. If you are planning your own RTW trip and are wondering which is the best option then heres a blog that might help you out.

 

We predominatenly travelled as a pair for the 9 months so we decided which cities, hostels,...

The on-the-go ‘Drobe: What to Wear, Where

We all want to look good on our travels, granted. Our FB albums are longing to be packed to the brim with ridiculously impressive snaps from around the world, and the last thing we want to do is hide them all from our timelines!

But in all seriousness, this is real life. If you're going to be backpacking we can almost guarantee that you'll be on-the-go constantly, and the last thing which'll plague your brain will be your clothes! ‘Is this in season?’ should turn to ‘am I in the correct...

#experienceit - See South Africa!

‘Tourists see the world, travellers experience it’ is an anology we live close by here at Real Gap. One of the best ways to travel is to really scratch away at a place, to go off exploring and to go off the beaten track. Staying close to the tourist trail is a fantastic way to kick back and relax (usually around a pool, right?) but if you want to do something which will change your life, pick and country and actually #seeit.
 
A country we have a massive load of love for is South Africa,...

Living life island style!

Leaving the outback and heading to the paradise of Fiji was a little daunting at first, but something that we had been looking forward to since we left for our ultimate year out!
 
We arrived in Nadi and were instantly overwhelmed by Fijian hospitality. We got picked up and taken to our hostel and within an hour we had booked our trip to the Yasawa Islands. That night we got to watch (but not experience, well not yet anyway) the joy of kava and meet a group of people who were just finishing...

We’ve been searching high and low within Team RG to find our best travel highlights from our own adventures. Inspiration central!

Danielle: Make the most of everything, and definitely expect the unexpected!
 
Sophie: Try everything once. I ate seafood for the first time in...

East Coast Adventures

It was straight off the plane from new Zealand and then on to the first greyhound bus to Byron Bay! Only a short 14 hour bus ride overnight to our destination. It really does enlighten how big Australia is! Luckily as I was so tired from the night before being on a plane, I pretty much slept the whole way through.
 
First stop Byron Bay! It's the hippie central of Australia with loads of funky bars and shops where you can get your palm read as well as a massage! We had a surf lesson booked on...

#experienceit - Be the Foodie!

We're all massive fans of our food here at Real Gap, and one of the best things about going away is undeniably the chance to try a host of exotic foods. Check out Real Gap’s Chris, who ended up getting more than he bargained for during his travels throughout Asia...
 
‘I was wandering around a small town in Thailand and I was hungry, looking for some food, specifically chicken, as you can get a stick of chicken and chili sauce for 10baht (20p). Well, I found this street vendor who was selling...

New Zealand - South Island!

After the adventure of the North Island, it was time to explore the beauty of the South Island! For The Lord of the Rings fans, this is where you'll find all the mountain ranges and the forests and lakes and things :-)
 
Our first stop was Kaiteriteri, where we decided to take it easy and do a little sunbathing whilst the others went kayaking, the same for our next stop Westport! Then it was on to Franz Josef where the fun and adventure kicked up a notch! Franz Josef is home to a massive...

#experienceit - RG's Laura is off to Sydney

We’re all serious travelholics here in the Real Gap office. Last week RG’s Hannah got back from touring around Sri Lanka, Alex had been sunning it up in Cape Verde, Nicky was city breaking in the glamorous New York and on Monday Rob landed back in the UK from Cape Town. Trust us, it’s hard to keep track of where we’re all off to!

 

Since last May I’ve been counting down my massive trip to Australia. It’s always felt like a bit of a dream and frankly, a bit out of my league (how do I get that...
