review 12 Sep 2008

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

On my last day in the village where I had been with children developing a bike track and teaching them to cycle, we had a special Olympics race day! About 100 of the locals turned up to compete! It was a load of fun and very special (and my 30th birthday).

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared for the impact of coming back! You'll have an amazing time, really connect with the community and things in your head will shift, just a little ... but when you get home, nothing will have changed and it's a bit of a shock! Make sure you can stay for long enough!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes absolutely - but that was the purpose!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

10/10 - no question!
