And so it begins…

Posted on: June 5, 2011

I thought I should probably start a blog for when I go to Tanzania in July, as a way to document what I will be experiencing. Although I may bring an old fashioned journal (haha) as well, I am going to try and limit my time on the internet, so having a blog is much easier, and whoever wants to read it, can! I go to Arusha, Tanzania July 13th and come back August 13th, and I already regret not extending my time… but I have responsibilities here to attend to. I am volunteering in an orphanage (to be determined where a couple of weeks before I go) through International Volunteer HQ (still unsure as to what the HQ stands for- headquarters? high quality?). I fly from Winnipeg-Montreal-Amsterdam-Kilimanjaro and on the way back I go Kilimanjaro- Dar es Salaam- Amsterdam- Calgary- Winnipeg. Long Journey!

I have been wanting to volunteer overseas somewhere since high school, but only now do I feel mature enough to go and actually do so. I was choosing between Tanzania and Ecuador (Ecuador for selfish reasons- Galapagos Islands), but ultimately decided on Tanzania after reading about others’ experiences.

I will try and update 1-2 times a week while I am there and before that, update when I receive information about where I am volunteering! I don’t know how to make this blog look nice or anything, but this will make do 🙂
