A trip to the other end of the world
A volunteer program in Thailand – It’s June 13th and our beautiful adventure in Thailand ends in seven days. Seven Days, I’m sure, way too fast. Since we are here, we have all passed through a range of very varied emotions, passing through despair, fear, wonder and happiness, happiness to its purest state. It is sure that living with some other people and a hundred insects, eating with them, and sharing the kitchen, shower, toilet and three hammocks with them may sometimes be difficult but not insurmountable. Besides, I enjoyed teaching English to children so much.
Teaching English in Thailand
At First, I was more than reluctant to join a group of children for two hours a day and have to teach them a language that I don’t even know perfectly.
These two hours spent every day with my Thai students have finally been very beneficial to me. I’ve learned so much from these kids, I’ve probably learned much more from them, than them from me.
The beauty of an experience
In conclusion, during this trip, I saw trees of equal beauty, I nailed more nails in three hours than in 19 years of life, I visited beautifully grandiose places, I made meetings absolutely Memorable, I faced my fears, I learned, I danced, I discovered, I explored, I washed my clothes by hand, I took sun, a lot of sun, I took advantage of life, I ate rice, screamed, sang, laughed, but mostly, I grew up.
