AFTER 10 YEARS WE LEARNT




IT'S THE PHILOSOPHY WE LIVE BY AT GANDYS.


10 years of travelling the world. 10 years of exploring. 10 years of pushing boundaries.

 

The past 10 years of our lives have revolved around building Gandys, a travel inspired clothing brand made for adventurers by adventurers.

 

Growing up Paul and I have always been inspired by the world's most iconic experiences in the most inspiring locations. From cruising on motorbikes through the Himalayan mountains to catching the sunrise at Cappadocia and opening up our kids campuses all over the world. Adventure has been ingrained in us ever since our parents took us out of school to travel alongside them.

Travel is a personal journey for everyone. It allowed us to have a fresh start after the tsunami. Solo travelling made us feel excited, yet intimidated and it also helped us toughen up mentally and emotionally.

 

Due to the pandemic over the last year, for the first time ever we’ve had to put travel on hold. It was a shock to the system as exploring is a great escape from our hectic lives and makes us feel like we don't just exist. Since we have been in lockdown, we’ve developed an even stronger desire to get outdoors and embrace the planet that surrounds us.

 

With freedom on the horizon and lockdown easing, it’s time to take on the outdoors - bigger and better than ever before. As much as we are itching to catch the next flight to one of our kids campuses, we are also excited to take living to a whole new level. Freedom has never been so appealing. It’s time to celebrate and grab each day, It’s time To Don’t Just Exist.

 

To stand out, risks have to be taken.

 

The question is... Are you game?



THE ULTIMATE

EXPRESSION OF FREEDOM

The last 10 years have been a #challenge!

 

Stripping down in front of mountainous terrains, snowy landscapes, picturesque lakes and waterfalls is a trend symbolic of freedom, adventure, and risk-taking.  

 

We are challenging you to push boundaries, experience freedom and explore possibilities. This challenge is for people who want to go further. Let’s embrace freedom like never before.

 

Travel lovers from across the globe are joining in the challenge, stripping down in epic locations with their favourite Gandys travel gear by their side. With Bali Backpacks in continents throughout the world, it represents people’s desires to push boundaries and explore!



With so much negativity online, it is important to use our social media platforms in a positive way to inspire people to experience the world again and embrace untouched areas of the planet.

 

We exist to unite our community of like minded individuals who seek adventure and thrive to do more than exist.
