2016 is starting in spectacular style as well. A long awaited adventure is just around the corner and I wanted to share it with you guys. On January 11th I will travelling from the UK to Colombia for a month. I have been doing volunteer work (on top of my paid job) for just over three years now and I have long wanted the chance to do something bigger much further away and on my own. I'm off to Medellin in South America to work in an orphanage (more of a foundation) for children who have been rescued from the streets. I have spent the last six months learning basic Spanish so I can teach the kids all about Britain (I have put together an engaging programme that covers history, culture, language, food, etc with lots of play involved). They have no exposure to other parts of the world so it is an invaluable chance to broaden their horizons. I will even have the opportunity to walk the streets and talk with kids who aren't so fortunate, feed them and find them shelter. I think it is going to be an incredible experience and I would love to be able to share some pictures with you guys when I get back. Thanks to my very generous friends I'm going to be delivering a late Christmas too...they have donated all kinds of toys, games and clothes for me to take in an extra case.
I'm going to have some time while I'm out there to post some reviews so I will still be updating the blog. But I'm madly excited about this journey I'm about to embark on and wanted to share that excitement with you.
