Congratulations go to Danya Bush, Josh Connon and David Benson – members of the Swaziland GAP team out in Mozambique at the moment who have just completed and passed their PADI Open Water Dive courses and are now qualified divers!

Name your own species….

Looking to live on in ecological immortality? Then why not take up the challenge to name one of Britains many un-named species. The competition is being run in conjunction with Natural England, The Oxford University Museum of Natural History and The Guardian. Plants and animals are dying out across the UK without ever being known […]

My World cup hero Luis Suarez.

In a world cup that let’s face it provided very little in the way of entertainment there is one character that will for me be a lasting memory South Africa 2010.  It’s not an physic octopus, Spain’s tika taka, the at times breathtaking speed of German attack, the Argentinean teams adoration for their tactic less […]

Welcome Home Swazi Team!

  As the Swaziland Gap team bid good-bye to Africa at the end of their three months of hard work and adventure, a fitting farewell photo was crafted by the ingenious team – Toby Stafford-Deitsch, Danya Bush, Josh Connon, Richard Whalley, and David Benson.    Nice work guys, it’s awesome!     

Rose’s World Cup hero – perhaps – Mesut Özil

Why?  He may have scored only one goal for Germany, a stormer against Ghana, but set up two other corkers and did some sterling midfield work.  And all in his first year at international level, at the tender age of 21…  With so many fumbling passes and dodgy team-work throughout the tournament, it was just refreshing […]

A Travel Playlist?

<!–[endif]–>One of the best bits about packing for a trip – if I’m honest, maybe the only good bit – is sorting out what music to take with.  Gone are the awkward days of a bulky pile of CDs, or even cassette tapes, depending on your age….I still love my tapes.  But anyway, now the […]

Malawi Team Update

Rain, rain, rain, rain in Africa, what’s going on?! Within the last week we have worked in rain, played football with the youth group, shopped in Blantyre (shniedy Nandos, which wasnn’t actually a Nandos), attended a local wedding with live chickens and flying notes. We’ve also had a few ill team members, but they’re all […]
