Life is a collection of little moments..

I would like to begin by saying that joining Learn to Travel program was the best decision I ever made. I knew it was going to be a big step in my life, but I never thought it will have such a huge impact on my future. Jumping on an adventure with strangers from different countries sounded so crazy, I never imagined that those strangers will become my family in the end. Volunteering in the most kind and lovely communities, with kids and people so warm made us all think how much we appreciate life. Travelling, making friends along the way, sleeping in hammocks in the middle on the Amazonian jungle surrounded by thousands mosquitoes and wild animals, freezing in the Andes, sweating in the desserts, all made us stronger and better.
I will definitely remember this one year adventure with One World Institute for the rest of my life, and I recommend it from the bottom of my heart to all the people who are seeking happiness.

An amazing gap year that turned into a lifestyle

After finishing high school, I had no idea what to do next, because I didn't feel ready for university. Once I found out about this awesome opportunity to travel and volunteer, I was in for it without any doubts. The team that I did my program with was indescribably super and the experiences we shared on our journey from Norway to halfway through South-America, were something I would have never believed being possible. That year full of good times with open-minded, adventurous people and amazing destinations helped me grow up and widen my perspectives of life.
After finishing the Learn to Travel program, I went back home, just to realise that what I really want to do, is another program, so I joined for the Fighting with the Poor program. Thank you.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Many people think that a year or two is a too long time for doing a program like this, but the truth is that time flies when you're having fun, and in the end, you'd wish that all of it could have lasted just a bit longer. The number of experiences that a person can receive from these programs is honestly mind-blowing.
After doing a lot of research, I couldn't find anything similar to these programs; cheap, convenient and an excellent way for one to build character.

My experience

It was one of the best decisions I have taken to join this program. I had always dreamt about traveling somewhere totally different, different culture and environment, and this program gave me all of this. I got new friends, with who I got to travel. I got out of my comfort zone, new experiences, challenges. At first it was hard to step out of my comfort zone but I learned a lot in the progress and I had good people, my team, beside me.

It was one amazing year and I would do it all over again, would recommend it to anyone, who wants to take a little time off and travel together with a team, who will become your friends durning this program.
