Hello, I've been absent lately so apologies! I don't have any particular reason really, well I was poorly a little and had overtime in work and yeah just got busy and I couldn't be bothered to be honest. Anyway, it's Sunday and it is my day off so I thought I'd share a bit of my life with you all. I have been hit with the travelling bug over the past few weeks, partly influenced by my friend going to Bali next year for a month! She going to do train to teach yoga and I'm so excited for her! :)
Anyway, I was thinking how I would go about travelling and where to go etc. I have never really fancied just going off on my own and trying to figure out a country by my lonesome so I thought what would be better than going to volunteer abroad. As you may notice from the picture above my first calling is India.
I searched the internet for volunteer placements abroad and after realising the expensive price tag, I came to the grim realisation that I was to save every penny I earn for next year to just afford it. Until I came across another volunteer organisation that was a fraction of the price! So naturally a smile spread across my face because I can afford to go to several places and not just one. I chose India because I have always had a fascination with the culture and I have always wanted to go and explore it's amazing scenery.
My plan is to visit India after I graduate next year in the October. I'm going to volunteer at a project for children with learning disabilities and I'll be living with an Indian family. I want to go for a month and just be immersed into a totally different culture and atmosphere. I'm not going to pretend like it's going to be easy but I how will I know what life really means without experiencing every different aspect the world has to offer?
After India I want to go to Thailand, Indonesia, Brazil, Jamaica, Nepal, Argentina and the list goes on. I just thought I'd give you a little update on my plans and aspirations.
