My trip to Galapagos was thoroughly amusing! ! It is such an amazing and unique place, where you can volunteer, see the improvments and at the same time enjoy getting to know Ecuadorian culture and interesting personalities not only from Southa America but also volunteers from all over the world. I was very happy that I was able to learn so much and actually participate in conservation projects. I have always wanted to visit the Galapagos but could not justify being a tourist without helping this delicate habitat.
Lead-adventures provided me the perfect opportunity to visit four different islands, see so many interesting species and also help out with conservation work! Traveling with Lead Adventures let me discover Eciador not only from the turist side- but aloso from teh side of Eciadorian People. Living with the families, learning spanish, eating traditional food- really unforgettable.
Although the work was physically demanding, some of my best memories on the trip were during the project days. I met so many people from all over, and their stories were intriguing and inspiring. I hope to continue conservation work in the future.
In addition to the work, the organised trips were amazing. I know I couldn´t have planned some of the adventures we had participated in and I´m so grateful that Lead-adventures was so good at providing scheduled activities, along with meals and transportation.
What is the most important Volunteering with Lead-Adventures let me open my eyes - appreciate more what I have and see the need of helping others.
