My experience was so much fun. Not only did it let me discover a new culture but also help the community I was staying in. We volunteered in a school, we were painting the walls bright colours and adding murals to them to make their learning environment a mite enjoyable place to learn in. It was great fun meeting all the kids as they were so interested in us and loved to teach us new games that we brought back to England. But the trip wasn’t all work and no play. We were able to explore the culture on an evening and spent lots of time looking around stalls. We had a couple days off from our volunteering program and were able to truly experience the country, we watched the sun rise over the mountains. Overall it was just an experience of a lifetime.
