7 Volunteer Abroad Trips For Tight Pocketed Travelers

Volunteer abroad tips

Volunteering abroad is an amazing thing to do, for a lot of reasons. First and foremost, it enables you to give something of real significance to a worthy cause.

It can also provide something more personal in the form of valuable life experience. Living among people born into difficult circumstances, or seeing first-hand areas damaged by neglect or exploitation is eye-opening. It allows you to comprehend these issues far better than by watching the news, or reading a book ever could. Understanding these issues and then contributing to their improvement can bring a real sense of wellbeing.

Why Cycling is the Best Way to Explore the World

WomanBicycle is the best way to explore the worldon bike tour

There are plenty of ways to explore the world, but not all of them give you the sense of freedom and the strong thighs you get from seeing the sights from your bike. The first thing I ever fell in love with about cycling was actually a bicycle bell that I was given for my 13th birthday; it had the classic ting ting! sound that I’d heard in countless movies during my childhood, and I spent the rest of that birthday ringing it in my family’s ears over and over again.
