Testimonial from Daniel Wellings

The reason I booked this project was I wanted to experience a new culture and help the community at the same time; GVI has more than fulfilled my expectations.

I have spent two weeks here in Phang Nga and they have been some of the best weeks of my life; my time here has been really inspirational and life changing. There have been many many highlights on this trip. To name a few, the Thai culture and people: the Thai culture is so different when compared to what I am used to at home, the people are so friendly and welcoming. For example, we visited a care centre during our trip and before we had even said hello the kids came running and smiling and laughing. Also, the locals around Ban Nam Khem, the place I was staying at, were so friendly, you just met them with a simple "sawatdee-krap" (hello) and they would instantly smile back and do the same. The other thing about this GVI trip was the staff involved; they were extremely accommodating and very friendly, definitely some of the nicest staff members I have ever met. The reason I booked this project was I wanted to experience a new culture and help the community at the same time; GVI has more than fulfilled my expectations. I have learnt about Thai language and culture from GVI staff members and have also lived in a real Thai village and helped at a local Thai school, which I can successfully say had given me more than enough experience. Overall I would definitely recommend a trip like this to anyone interested; as I have said before, it has been a great experience and I have met some great people who I will hopefully stay in contact with through years to come.
