We’re all itching to travel again. Without a doubt, the lockdown has taken a toll on you and your loved ones, and nothing sounds better than taking a trip somewhere to unwind. Unfortunately, no one is going anywhere for the foreseeable future. So why not take this time to plan the ultimate trip? While you’re at it, why not consider doing something new? Let’s talk about why you should ditch your next vacation for a volunteer trip. Because we all know that the world could use some more kindness and compassion now more than ever.
On a normal holiday, you get to explore the culture, cuisine, and experience new things. A volunteer trip allows you to do the same thing but instead gives you the chance to get closer to the locals. It also gives you a chance to give back, to use your skills, maybe make a difference in their society. It’s all about your personal journey. Plus, why go the typical route and get stuck in lines moving between tourist traps that are overcrowded and overpriced? Volunteer experiences will let you explore while also getting a closer, more meaningful memory.
