With 21 years I have felt like it`s about time to leave Europe and see something completely different. After taking my first long distance flight (witch was amazing btw! So many movies, comfortable seats and quite good food), I ended up at Curious Island. I really...
Despite an awesome barbecue (including lots and lots of Hawaiian shirts) to end week four, week five kicked off on a rather sad note – three of our dearly beloved volunteers left camp to go home or embark on further adventures. They left many a broken heart behind...
Friday we were invited over to the Rangers’ Station to enjoy a good BBQ with the members of SNPA. We were picked up by a very helpful and sweet guy, and both the volunteer group and the staff members were driven to the beach spot which we hardly get to enjoy when we...
