Hi Debby and Ollie,

I just wanted to write and say thank you so much for helping me organise the trip to Sri Lanka and for playing a large part in me choosing to go there! I had the most wonderful month and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience, Sri Lanka is absolutely beautiful! I also wanted to let you know that I changed my itinerary whilst I was out there because I found out about all the volunteer opportunities that are available. I asked Dhamikke if I could volunteer at the girls orphanage and he arranged for me to actually live there for a week, it’s safe to say this was actually the most extreme part of my trip but it was also the most rewarding experience I have ever had and I couldn’t recommend it more if I tried. They really need more volunteers for so many different projects, I know it isn’t something you specialise in but if you are even considering it just thought I’d say go for it! I also thoroughly enjoyed working with the turtles down at the beach – we actually got to release 50 baby turtles into the sea whilst I was there which was nothing short of magical. It’s something that has been on my bucket list for years and it was just incredible! Basically I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and to Dhamikke and the other coordinators out there for all your help, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Xtreme gap to all of my friends! Best wishes, Rebecca

Staying such a long time at the surf camp also meant i could become really good friends with everyone living and working at the camp which was one of my favourite parts! and to answer the family question because everyone looks after each other and everyone so close I didnt get home sick at all and hated leaving the camp when i eventually had to go to meet other friends out in Australia..

Oliver, you´re such a star \” you never fail to sweep my worries aside and your personal ´customer´ service is fantastic and so appreciated.  You always answer all my questions with great detail and it immediately makes me feel better!  I hope I don´t win the prize for the mother who has worried the most about the least significant things!!.

I wanted to write you some time ago, but now finally, thank you for a great trip to Thailand Fitness Camp in June 2012. I had a really great time working out 3 weeks. A great place, met some really great people and I got to do the best workouts ever! I just loved the Buddha runs and Beach Thursdays and also really enjoyed the yogas and afternoon crossfits..

On the first day, I was met at the airport by a and taken to the first hostel. I really enjoyed my stay here as it had a really relaxed vibe and was full of other young travelers. The staff were very welcoming and took us not only on some great day tours but joined us on some great nights out too. The activities themselves were varied and well chosen. I especially loved going shark cage diving, which really was a once in a lifetime experience! As
