Projects Abroad Volunteer Travel Blog
2014 has raced by for me, but the end of another year is always a good time to reflect on the last twelve months. To end 2014 here are some of my favourite images taken by staff and volunteers in our destinations over the past year.
Samantha Corbett works in our Global Information Office in Cape Town. In this blog she encourages you to get off the beaten track in her beloved city and explore some of Cape Town’s lesser known, but equally worthwhile attractions.
In this post we focus on a travel challenge a bit closer to home. Guest blogger Joanna Glyde tells us about cycling the South Downs Way, a 100 mile cycling route in the south of England. Jo is joined on her challenge by Projects Abroad’s UK Recruitment Director, Suzi Lamb.
Part 2 of our Vietnam special and we are heading to the tropical South. Palm-fringed beaches, mad monks and Saharan-like sand dunes – this country is full of surprises!
Vietnam offers the keen traveller an intoxicating mix of tantalising cuisine, spectacular scenery and enchanting culture. In this blog, I share my top things to do in North Vietnam.
From the lantern-lit streets of chilled-out Chengdu to the intense crowds and pace of life in the capital, China really does blow you away. Some of my most memorable experiences ended up involving traditional Chinese food and drink in some way. In this blog, I’m going to share some of my favourites.
In my opinion, there is no best time to visit Thailand. Whilst some remote destinations may be difficult to access during the rainy season, you shouldn’t let the weather put you off - there is always something going on somewhere! So, rather than wondering whether you should go at all, look at it more as where you should go when. I’ve provided some of my suggestions for each month of the year to help you decide.
From mass slaughters and miserable living conditions to hushed-up attacks on humans – in this blog we look beyond the dolphin smile and ask whether or not it’s time to kick swimming with dolphins off the bucket list.
Camera trap images of animals are increasingly being used to raise conservation awareness. Some of these images are amusing, others have captured rare or elusive animals. All show incredible scenes that you would never get to see up close or in person.
