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:

Santa Monica Pier: Full to the brim with fun and games, arcade attractions and amazing views of the beach and beyond, Santa Monica’s pier is definitely worth a visit whilst you’re in LA. If you're lookign to pick up a cheeky tan too, then this is definitely the place to be!

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

BANG-kok

We all love an occasion here at Real Gap, and today is one of our personal favourite's- Bonfire Night! To match the fiery nature of the big day, we wanted to show you a city with bags of passion and attitude; a place that could hardly be referred to as the 'shy and retiring' type...

Just as Guy attempted to blow the Houses Parliament up all those years ago, Bangkok does one better as the party capital of Thailand- it’ll blow your mind! As a part of Real Gap’s Thailand experience, get a taster...

Languages: Simple, serious or scary?

 

As a part of our Real Gap Experience spooky spectacular, we're talking about things that have scared the pants off of us. In this particular chapter, we're going back to school and putting on our bilingual hats...

We all remember it well. School, lessons, taking a language. Becoming terrified of *said* language. Revising our bums off to achieve a half decent grade in *that* language. Chewing our pen lids to pieces in *those* classes. It felt difficult. We felt intimidated.

But after weeks of...

Traveller Tales - Nina's India Experience

 

As I stepped out of the airport into the thick Indian air, I was immediately covered in sweat, even though it was six in the morning. I was met by my RealGap representative, Amit, who was going to be my guide for the next month. We shook hands and he was very polite, as I would soon find out, most Indians are. He took my bags, loaded them into the car and we were off, into the bustling streets and crazy traffic of Delhi. Swerving between tuk tuks, mopeds and cows trying to cross the street;...

But this is what you signed up for, right? And bravely you find your way past the hawkers, gawkers and squawkers as your adventure begins and your Thailand experience begins to take root.

Of course, getting into...
