So...this is my last post from the UK as my long awaited departure will commence next week. Having spent the best part of two years saving up for my trip and researching everything you could possibly think of, it is now time to leave. I look forward to the coming months with great excitement and trepidation.
Below are a couple of pictures showing the "bomb site" that is my room - there is just stuff everywhere including a sleeping bag, clothes and a frisby. Everything I need will be in my rucksack! This is just a brief plan of my first month abroad:
Leeds Bradford - Palma Majorca - Barcelona - Istanbul - Lilongwe - Nkhata Bay
I'm a Human Geography graduate seeking a career in international development. The purpose of my trip is to gain some relevant experience in developing countries. I plan to volunteer on a long term basis, participating in various community development projects across Southern and Eastern Africa. This blog will be a way of informing friends and family of my whereabouts and to discuss in detail some of the experiences I have.
