When this time rocks up each January, we don't half feel sorry for you lot doing your A-Levels. We know how you feel; your life as you know it is in serious limbo and frankly, deciding whether you want to go to uni or not can kindly shove off.
We know a load of you won't be sure as truthfully, most of us weren't 100% sold whether we wanted to go to uni either. Between the RG team we're split 50/50 with uni goers, so it's easy for us to argue the pros and cons; there are loads for both! As the...Read More
2013 has been a BIG year for Team RG. We’ve upped sticks and moved to the seaside, dominated Brighton with our nights out (soz, Brights) and have been travelling around left, right and centre to control our symptoms of ‘itchy feet’ #nofungusinvolvedpromise
As we’re all obsessed with travelling here in the Real Gap office, we thought we’d work out how many countries we’ve discovered between us this year and we’ve got to admit, we’re pretty impressed. Over the last 12 months we've conquered 40...Read More
Hi everyone, it's Melissa and Becky here! After our volunteering stint in Surin, we decided to get some much needed R&R in the Thai Islands.
There's quite a lot to chose from, so we thought we'd give you a run down of what's what!
We headed to Phuket first, which is the largest of the islands, and the craziest we visited! What we thought was a nice relaxing beach retreat, soon changed, thanks to the rain. Instead, we tested out a few of the many bars and restaurants in the never ending 'party...Read More
We cannot believe one of our favourite months, September, is already coming to a close! How can this be? And does that REALLY mean the sale is about to end?
And unfortunately... yes, yes it does! (I know, we can hardly believe it either!). So if you're looking to book on a trip of a lifetime, now really is the time to do it.

Hi everyone, it's Melissa and Becky here!
We're currently hiding from the rain, monsoon season really has hit. So we thought we would update you on how things went in Bangkok once we moved to Khao San Road.
We had heard a lot of talk about Khao San road but there aren't really many words to describe it. There are bars, shops and restaurants as well as street sellers offering many delights of Thailand including the odd scorpion or two... which we quickly declined!
In the day we checked out...Read More
Now their 'Ultimate Year Out' has officially begun, Melissa and Becky have kindly updated us on their first few days in the buzzin' Bangkok. We must admit, back in Real Gap HQ we're very jealous! Here's how they're getting along so far on their adventure...
Last year Real Gap held a MASSIVE competition to win the 'Ultimate Year Out', and after submitting a video entry and going through rounds of voting, Melissa and Becky were the lucky two. What did they win? A year long Round The World trip on us! So without further ado, here's how the girls are getting on...
Less then a week to go and we've just arrived at the Real Gap and i-to-i office getting all the info for the trip. We've met the team and tomorrow we'll get our aussie working...Read More
