My desire to travel is getting the best of me again. My latest inspiration is the movie “The Impossible” which if you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend that you do. Having had the opportunity to travel with my family in the past has shown me how exciting it is, and I long to do more of it. With a path that has led to working with several non-profits; I have instilled in myself a passion to be a part of something bigger than myself, and to help others. I am very much interested in voluntourism or working while traveling. Anything that will allow me to experience the culture, help out if I can, and all on a budget that I may be able to manage.
If anyone has any advice I’d greatly appreciate it! What programs have you used? What stories might you have to share? What are some resources that you would recommend?
Also, another great movie that initially sparked my desire to travel that I suggest you view as well: “180 Degrees South.”
With Graduation fast approaching…(Hellloooooo Saturday!) Everyone seems to be packing up and getting ready to travel. I’m so bummed out that I’m not traveling with them…even though I’ve offered to fold myself up into my friend’s suitcase. So I’m making a promise to myself to start planning and saving up so that I can travel summer of 2013! I’ve never planned a trip on my own so any advice you may have please feel free to share!
I guess the first step would be to pick a location. I’ve been to Australia and Mexico, but here’s a rather long list of countries I’m yearning to explore. What do you think?
