2012 #tywAmazingRace Part IV | India Volunteer Trip

Summary: Post graduation, I decided to volunteer in India.

I also wanted to experience the daily life living in one of the world’s fastest growing developing countries. This blog is meant to share and document my journey from Canada -> India, and you will find stories all the way from trip preparations to experiences, cultural insights, trekking journal entries, and ideas gained as I travelled across various regions in India volunteering on 3 different projects. It is my personal wish to make this website a meaningful project that will encourage, educate, and inspire my readers/future travellers, as well as teach them about the daily life and challenges in India.

This was my first summer as an “adult HK citizen.” Hanging out with AIESECers from the Youth, Environmental, Sustainability Future Leader’s Conference at CUHK, I lead groups of high school graduates for 4 days and familiarized myself in a new country. Before returning to Canada for a month-long journey in Montreal, I also retreated to South Korea for my 3rd annual mother-daughter trip, where I basked in 100-day old chicken ginseng soup, relaxing spas, and indulged in history…
