    Amazingly crazy Cape Town.
    04/29/2016

    I don't even know where to begin. I'm home for two weeks now and my heart literally has been aching for Cape Town and everything that came with it. First of all there is the city itself. It was incredibly beautiful, every day there was something new to discover. Every time again another breathtaking view. Second, there are the people I met. The other volunteers and travellers were all great, they gave me the time of my life. So many memories and adventures I will never forget. But most important. My kids. In the beginning I tried to keep my distance because I know I get attached easily to kids. So yes, you read it right, I tried. Of course after a couple hours I already blew it. Big time. Those sweet little babies with there endless smiles, crazy talk, big hugs, wet kisses, sparkling eyes, cutest laughs,... They stole my heart since day one. Since that day one they got into my heart every day a little more. I knew some of them had been through a lot and didn't have much at home. But seeing them smile and looking into those beautiful eyes and see some happiness... It got to me a few times. While we keep thinking about the bad things, they let go and live in the moment. They choose happiness. Every day over and over again. Because they have to. They have to fight every day for what they want, and sometimes even to survive. They're the bravest of all mankind. And that's what I will never forget. That's what changed my life and my point of view. They choose happiness, so I will choose happiness too. With my kids in my heart, I will try to choose happiness every day over and over again.

    Great time with Volunteering Solutions in Rabat
    04/05/2016

    In Februar 2016 I had the great pleasure to teach a class of 14-years old students (the majority female) english.
    When I arrived Ali, who is one of the coordinators for the project, help es me a lot to give me an orientation where the school is located, how to go there from the host family, where I can find the most beautiful places in Rabat and so on.
    I really enjoyed the teaching project because I had to use all my creativity to prepare the lessons. Fortunately, I was able to teach bilingual (english and french), this helped me a lot for the first communication with the students because my class were really just beginners in english.
    I can really advise you to make the Experiences of teaching self-responsible and free of any teaching plan you have to follow.
    More over the program is much more than just the teaching itself.
    It is also about learning a lot about the Islam, about the moroccan culture and way of living. In my adorable host family I e.g. learned to eat by hands, I was able to learn a lot about the procedures on the Pray-Fridays and a lot more..
    Thank you very much VS that you offered me to have this great time in Morocco!

    Amazing time in Rabat Teaching students.
    04/01/2016

    I had an amazing time in Morocco. Living in the volunteer house Riad which was very great. I went on a trip with other volunteers where we became good friends and enjoye the time together.
    The teaching project was hard but an incredible experience because I had the chance to see how a student develops.
    I can also say that Volunteering Solutions was very helpful when it came to questions either via email or when we met their team in Morocco.

    How could this program be improved?

    I would highly recommand this program to anyone who wants to have a great experience.

    Nepal
    03/24/2016

    While in Nepal I got to work in a big children's hospital in Kathmandu. It was a great experience for me because I got to work alongside Nepalese doctors and residents. They took me in and taught me so much in the short time I was there. I got to see some very interesting and complex cases that I wouldn't otherwise see in the United States. I also got to see how doctors in Nepal practice medicine and compare and contrast my knowledge and experiences from America.

    How could this program be improved?

    I think it would be helpful if the doctors and residents would have been warned ahead of time that I was going to be joining them for a week. The first day I was there my team seemed confused. They didn't know who I was or why I was there. It also would have been helpful if they knew by skill level. Medical schools across the world are all different so they did not know how far along I was or what skills I knew.

    Magical Nepal
    03/15/2016

    My volunteer visit to Nepal was amazing! The people were friendly and welcoming, and the diverse landscape was amazing. The day I started my Language and Culture class, I looked out the window and asked my instructor if the mountains I saw in the distance got snow. She giggled and told me those weren't mountains, they were hills. She promised I'd see real mountains when we went into Kathmandu later in the day. As I walked over a bridge to get to Kathmandu Dubar Square, I looked towards the "hills" and saw beautiful white peaks behind them. I was amazed to see the mighty Himalayas!! Now, THOSE were mountains!
    Everywhere you look in Nepal is another treasure for the senses. The beautiful, ancient architecture marries beautifully with the chaos of the city. The hustle and bustle of everyday life contrasts sharply with the shrines that seem to be everywhere, yet at any given moment, one can hear the chiming of a bell that signifies someone has uttered a prayer. The spiritual and the corporal intertwine in a beautiful dance.
    If Kathmandu is the center of city life, then Pokhara is its quieter, gentler sister. The 8 hour bus ride to Pokhara treats the traveler to amazing agricultural landscapes. The road also follows a river, which is serene in some places and has tumbling rapids in others. Once in Pokhara, the lake is the main attraction. Calm and quiet, it gently beckons the traveler to take a boat ride and explore its many outlets. The highlight of my time there was seeing the rays of the rising sun shine on the snow capped peaks of the Anapurana mountain range. I am not eloquent enough to fully describe the beauty of that moment.
    Once back in Kathmandu, I spent a week at my assigned orphanage. The girls were wonderful! I learned so much from them! I only hope I made at least a small difference in their lives. These were sweet, beautiful girls with inquisitive minds. It was my privilege to serve them.
    I miss many things about my time in Nepal. I miss the chaos of the city, the beauty of the scenery, and the depth of the culture. However, the thing I miss the most is the warm and welcoming people.My life perception has been changed by the people I have met and by the extraordinary children I served. Friendships were made and sealed by fun and laughter. The world has become smaller and my mind has become broader by this amazing experience. NAMASTE!!

    How could this program be improved?

    I would have appreciated if someone from the program had met me inside the airport to help me with the visa / immigration process. It was a little confusing and overwhelming.
