Our 5th and 6th stops on this trip were Shanghai and Seoul and they really were unlike anywhere else! With just 5 days spanning our time in both China and South Korea, we didn’t have long to explore these cities, but what we did get a chance to see was an amazing experience that has… Continue reading Popping into Shanghai and Seoul.
*Excuse the lateness of this post - by the time I got round to trying to upload it I was in China, meaning I couldn’t access the internet properly. Anyway, here it is! Better late than never... enjoy! My travels so far have whizzed by in a flash and Sydney was no exception. I’ve been… Continue reading A brief summary of a brief trip to Sydney.
My last week in Niubasaga Village, Moturiki island is now over. Yesterday we left the village and, honestly, I wasn’t ready to leave! The final week on project was the craziest and the quickest - if you can believe that’s even possible after the insane few weeks I’ve had! Things were shaken up a lot… Continue reading The Final Week in Niubasaga
Bula Vinaka, My second week in the village is drawing to a close and it’s been absolutely incredible this week - we’ve seen and done so much and it’s completely set us aside from any other Think Pacific project even more than we already were! As you know, Monday started off with a hospital visit… Continue reading Week 2 in Niubasaga
Bula! I finally found some internet so here is a summary of my first week living/working in a Fijian village: I cannot believe I’ve been in the village a whole week. It feels like a completely different planet. It’s been an insane experience already - I say as I’m sat on a hospital bed on… Continue reading Week 1 in Niubasaga
I’m in Fiji. It seems weird to say that. It’s been so long coming and I’m finally, actually here. It definitely feels strange. The first two nights at the beach hostel near Nadi airport (Bamboo Beach) were pretty relaxed. We got to meet our team for our Think Pacific project who are all so lovely.… Continue reading I can’t believe I’m actually here…
Hello everyone, Sorry for such sporadic posts! It’s been a little crazy and I haven’t had much time to stop and think, let alone write! But it’s been a good thing as I’ve been having the most amazing time. I left off with us in Singapore on my last post. Since then we enjoyed one… Continue reading To New Zealand and Beyond
Hello World! Sorry for going MIA! I had hoped to get another post up before I left but everything got very last minute and crazy and before I knew it I was on an airplane! I’m now in Singapore. And have been here for two days. Time feels really weird and is passing very strangely.… Continue reading We’re not in England anymore…
Hello again, Long time, no see! I disappeared while I went to move out of uni and since I've been back home it's been pretty busy trying to get fully prepared, but I've finally stopped to breathe (and write another post). It's now T-5 days until I leave (AAHH!!!) and I'm only just starting to… Continue reading What am I taking backpacking?
The reason I am even travelling at all this summer is because I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to take part in a Think Pacific volunteering project through my university. So today I'm going to talk about the charity and the projects they offer as well as what I am expecting of my… Continue reading Think Pacific Volunteering
