10 sleeps to go…

…and counting. I am not ready, but in my experience it will all come together in the end. It always does. Armed with mosquito net, insect repellent, teaching books and a camera I am fully prepared to go forth and have an adventure!

A question I am often asked by my friends and relatives (and other people I gush to about my upcoming trip) is “why Cambodia?” Well, the truth is, I have no idea what prompted me to sign up for this trip. I was just looking around for a volunteer opportunity and when I saw this listing for Cambodia something clicked and I thought: “that’s it. That’s where I’m going.” It just seemed to fit with what I was looking for – an opportunity to give of my skills to a country and a people who could really benefit from them, just as I will undoubtedly benefit from my experiences. Now that I’ve researched a bit more about Cambodia I am really excited to be going there and experiencing their unique culture, learning more about their mysterious and incredible history, and sharing stories with the people there. I have a sneaking suspicion that no matter how much I attempt to give in this volunteer experience, I will always be getting more back than I can possibly equal.
