Megan's Story

By 6 years ago
Categories Phang Nga

18year old Megan is one of our newest Teaching Children Volunteer. After travelling for the last 2 months Megan decided to stop off in Thailand on her way back to Perth, Australia. Here is her story….

“I’m into my third week at base out of four and I am starting to really get used to living at base and in Thailand(I’m even starting to get used to cold showers!!). “

“So far I have really enjoyed my experience here, in the week teaching is full on and exhausting but it is so worth it. The kids are so cute and friendly and just excited all the time. It’s been awesome to be able to see a bit of the Thai culture- How they live and what their schools are like.”

“The weekends have been amazing aswell. The first weekend a group of us headed to Phi Phi- we were all really lucky to have beautiful beach weather – crystal clear blue skies! However the cocktails on Phi Phi were lethal so travellers beware!!!”

“The second weekend we went to Ao Nang where it was down-pouring non stop but we made the best of it and had a good laugh. We all went snorkelling and elephant trekking. The snorkelling was amazing!!”

“Another highlight of this trip has been the Pancakes (or roti as they call it here in Thailand) especially with Sarah. This weekends trip is yet to be decided but it will be good no matter what we do.”

“Can’t believe there are only 6days left of teaching over here. The whole month has gone so fast!!”

Well done Megan on being a fantastic volunteer this past month!!!
