)-- Gap Adventures is proud to introduce The Travel Oasis, a brand new adventure travel blog designed to connect travellers to the company’s dynamic, innovative culture.
The new travel blog showcases articles about the people and places that make Gap Adventures so unique, as well as news about Gap Adventures’ leading-edge trips and recent accolades, profiles on—as well as input from—some of the more than 700 Gappers that power those unforgettable life changing adventures, and regular updates on the Planeterra Foundation’s news and events.
“The Travel Oasis is an excellent opportunity for travellers, staff and industry partners to share their stories,” says Dan Christian, Director Marketing & eCommerce. “Whether it’s a article written by a traveller after just returning from a trip, to a top 5 list from our product department, to a surprise internal event like Operation Birthday, the new blog will give everyone connected to Gap Adventures an opportunity showcase their experiences with our company.”
The Travel Oasis moniker was chosen after a recent online naming contest. The winner, Susannah Greenwood of San Jose, Calif., was awarded a $500 Gap Adventures voucher for her creative efforts. Greenwood and her fellow adventurers will now have access to a compelling, regularly-updated travel blog where they can to share their photos from the field—the best of which will be chosen as the Travel Oasis Photo of the Week—while continuing to learn about the experiences of travel-obsessed Gappers.
