Diving Down Under!

Hi, it's Sophie here! Today on the RG blog, I'm going to be talking about my diving experiences...

When travelling to Aus, you think of three things:

1. The Sydney Opera House
2. The Sydney Harbour Bridge
3. The Great Barrier Reef!

As we were due to see the Bridge and the Opera House in the upcoming weeks, we decided the only logical thing to do when we were on Magnetic was to go and visit the Reef. With some boat companies you can glide along in a glass bottomed boat to see the reef but we...

Introducing our new RG Bloggers!

Last year, Sophie Parker and Alice Wainwright's worlds were turned upside down when they won a trip RTW with Real Gap. They've been away with us for the past few months combatting the US and Australia, and we thought it was about time we heard the inside scoop on their epic adventures...

The girl's still have a hefty slice of their RTW win to go; they'll be heading off on our Thailand Experience from the middle of March, and then flying onto the stunning South Africa at the end of April. We...

Travel On Your Doorstep!

Sometimes us Brits take for granted the fact that we are part of such a diverse continent, when really, Europe has so much to offer! Maybe you don’t have the money, time or even the urge to travel to far flung places, but do not fear, Real Gap also offers great trips in and around Europe ranging from volunteering to activity adventures.

A great way to see the “best bits” of Europe is with our European Highlights Tour http://www.realgap.co.uk/european-highlights If you are short on time and...

Packing Up!

At Real Gap HQ, we're always getting asked about packing, the bain of a travellers life. It's SO easy to forget something, and seriously- we feel all of your pain! So, want some packing tips? Step this way travelling fiend...

1. Research the climate from top to bottom! Sometimes assumptions can overcome logic. 'It's going to be BOILING in Thailand, I'll take shorts!' (thought Bob). Well, Bob thought wrong! Yes, it may be absolutely scorching hot in the tropical Thailand, but there's also a...

Happy New Year!

This is a serious one. We’ve always found New Year’s resolutions really tricky, as frankly we never keep them, and this year we’ve asked around the office to see what all of our New Year’s resolutions are…

  • Drink less tea and more water
  • Bring packed lunch instead of buying it (to save those all-important pennies for travelling!)
  • Lose weight/get fitter (although we say this every year :-/)
  • Rachel's personal resolution - hit "30 countries before 30" - 5 to go before June!
  • Complete TEFL course
  • Learn a...

Place Profile- The Crackin' Cape Town

Sitting at the base of the gorgeous Table Mountain, Cape Town couldn’t possibly fail to shape up to its mountainously impressive nature. With penguin colonies, gorgeous beaches, a harbour and fantastic shopping under its African belt, Cape Town is one almighty destination- and the first in our ‘Place Profile’ series!

The top five things we LOVE about Cape Town are:

1.       You’ve guessed it, Table Mountain! The top dog of Western Cape, Table Mountain sits pretty at 3500ft above sea level,...

Why We LOVE America: Top 5

Seeing as though Americans across the board will be getting their Thanksgiving on tomorrow, we thought we'd tell all of you why we're thankful for the USA!

Fast Food, Drive Thrus and Starbucks: Here at Real Gap Experience, our lives seem to constantly revolve around searching for our next meal. The thought of not having McDonalds, KFC and Burger King on the menu sends us into a cold state of shock (although admittedly, we don't have them too often as they're pretty unhealthy, and a balanced...

LA, the place to be!

We love the USA. End of. To celebrate our love for the nation of our dreams, we've put together a crafty little list of our favourite hotspots in Los Angeles:

Getty Museum: The word ‘museum’ would usually bore us all to...
