The best 3 months of my life

My time in Nepal was the best 3 months of my life, not only did I meet some amazing people but I also got to love and care for the most appreciative group of children on the planet. From helping with homework (re-teaching myself long division!) and organising all the children to visit the doctor and dentist, to playing cricket with them on a nearby field these experiences have truely enhanced my life.
It was difficult at times because living in a house with 23 children can be tiring, but the times I felt like it was getting difficult a child would make my day in a small way.
I would highly recommend travelling to Nepal to volunteer, making the most of every experience offered and remembering to appreciate every second.
The biggest culture shock will not be when you arrive in Nepal, it will be when you arrive home.
