Hi there, it's Harriet again. Thought I'd take over the blogging baton from Ben for the last couple of days!
After leaving Koh Tao we boarded the ferry to the stunning Koh Phangan. Luckily we prebooked the tickets (as they were fully booked!) - we reckon this was because of the Full Moon Party that was due to kick off the following day!
The ferry took 1 hour and we jumped in a taxi to our Thailand Experience final week's accommodation, Mac Bay Resort. This place was beautiful! It's based on a...Read More
Hiya guys! Now we're back in the UK Harriet and I thought we'd update you all on the last few days of our trip (Full Moon Party n' all!)- so expect to see all of the action on the Real Gap blog over the next week!
After having an amazing time volunteering, we spent our days 11-13 making our way down to the islands. We stopped back off at Bangkok for a couple of days to split up the trip, and then started the next part of our journey. We were both so excited to see a completely different part...Read More
It's Sophie here! As I've been in Aus for the last six months I'm starting to get to know some of the bigger cities pretty well now, and I remember thinking it was really hard to think what to pack just before I left. So to help you guys out- here are my top tips for what to pack in Aus!
Passport- Check. Visa, Check. Tickets, Check. Mother's credit card for emergencies...
Listed above are all the things you KNOW are essentials. Without them, you'd hardly get further than your front door, let...Read More
Hi there, it's Real Gap blogger Sophie here! I've absolutely loved my time in Melbourne, but since I'm now moving on to explore the East Coast, I thought I'd share the arty photos taken by my awesome mates in the city...
Melbourne is known as the 'indie' capital of Aus. Here, they are so conscious about remaining the 'Kings of Cool' that they have a geekish ruthlessness in protecting their hipster image. Coffee is made with syphons, and buskers are note perfect. No finishing touch is too...Read More
It's time for day 6!
We woke up around 7:30am to be met by Lucy, who is the manager of the Thailand Experience here in Sangklaburi. She kindly picked us up from the volunteer house to take us to the Seedan Hotel to meet up with the Thailand experience group- we had breakfast with the guys and then we all went on an orientation of Sangklaburi to be shown where all the bars, banks, chemists, coffee shops, laundry shops are. It was so handy to know where everything is; it was well worth the walk...Read More
Hi, it's Ben again! Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to Bangkok on Thursday- so here's a catch up of what we got up to on the next step of our adventure...
After leaving our time in Bangkok behind us (sob...) we started to head awesome Kanchanaburi to meet some of the Thailand Experience group, the lovely lot who came out here on the 8th March. We woke up at 11am after having a very heavy night- we were both feeling the pain but we had a 3 hour journey to kick back and relax so it was all...Read More
Hi guys! I'm currently out in Thailand with Harriet, reporting back to RG base on a day to day basis. We've done so much already!
After a great nights sleep we woke up in preparation to meet our tour guide, 'On'. He's a great guy, very chatty and spoke excellent English (better than me and Harriet, ha!). We met 'On' in the Sawasadee reception, jumped in a tuk tuk and headed off to our first stop- the Grand Palace.
It cost 500THB to get into the Grand Palace, which is actually included for...Read More
Over the past few weeks a few members of the RG team have been jetting off to some of our epic locations to check out our projects and experiences. Now's the time for Ben and Harriet to conquer Thailand- they're going to be travelling around and trying all things Thai for the next two weeks so expect updates galore from the troublesome twosome!
We're receiving LIVE email updates from Ben whilst they're over in Thailand; they landed on Tuesday and they've just spent the past few days in...Read More
Hi guys, it's Soph again! I've just moved 'houses' to save a bit of cash for my up and coming travels outside of Australia, and thought I'd let you all in on where I'm staying!
