"I, too, get asked that question so often that I've learned to say "wherever I am at the moment." And it's true that whatever country I'm in, I like to be totally there, not dreaming about the next destination. And I've had many "trips of a…"
"Yup, that's what everybody says. I haven't snorkeled in a long while but look forward to doing it there. Just today I got some "shoes" to wear in the water, as I'm told the seabed is very rocky. Sunblock? You bet, also a brimmed hat. How recently…"
"Thanks, Sandra. The volunteer project is set up by Frontier, a British society working on environmental issues. I'll have my laptop with me but need to get an adaptor plug in order to recharge it. Power source itself is okay, just the plug-in part…"
"Hi Sandra, I leave Sept. 17 for the Cook Islands where I'll be volunteering in a school in Aitutaki for 2+ weeks before heading to Papeete for the Aranui III cruise around the Marquesas Islands. Any advice or comments about Aitutaki? I'll be housed…"
"Petra isn't the only worthy site to visit in this hospitable country. I'm just back ten days ago, still reeling from all the history buried in Syira and Jordan. No political problems while we were there. Spend a night in a Bedouin tent in the desert…"
"Sure, Jose. I have zillions of pix, none of them edited as yet. But I'm not sure how to post any here. It's a land of rivers. Lots of birds--no pix of them though. I went out caiman-hunting one night with a research team; fascinating. I was mostly…"
"I'm just back from three weeks in fascinating Guyana. Loved it--even though I'm covered with insect bites. Sadly, the looked-forward-to excursion to Kaietur Falls was cancelled that very morning, due to weather conditions at destination. And I left…"
"Success! I leave Jan. 28 for Guyana and will head from Georgetown to Yupukari to volunteer for Yupukari Learners, an NGO established by an American woman a few years ago. It is involved in schools, libraries and other social service for that…"
"Sandy, you might enjoy "At Home in the World: Memoirs of a Traveling Woman" in which I relate my adventures in far-flung places such as Bolivia and Bhutan, Tanzania and Thailand--and more. Sorry, none in Europian countries, which you like best. Some…"
"Over the course of many years I've volunteered 22 separate times in 14 countries. I'm looking at next February for 2 weeks--plus a little travel time--in Guyana or Suriname. I've done Earthwatch projects, but usually teach English, as I did in Ghana…"
"I recently returned from Ghana, where I volunteered for 3 weeks with Cross-Cultural Solutions in Hohoe. That'a a seedy but charming small city (30,000) in the Volta Region, 4 hours north of Accra and very near the Togo border. I taught in a…"
