July 23   We all arose early to catch our 10:40 am flight and ended up hiring our own bus because the booked one didn’t show up. All went well and we checked our bags and got through security without a problem.   We had some lunch at an airport cafe and then waited until… Read More


Enjoy Africa!   Our last week of volunteering was in Dar Es Salaam. Here we worked at Calvary Montessori Pre and Primary school where we did teaching, painting and drawing teaching aids. The children at this school were all so lovely and extremely excited when they saw us “Msungu”. The environment created by the staff… Read More


Hey guys! I’m writing to you from Sihanoukville, Cambodia, where the Leapers have spent no more than a week working at a school and exploring the exotic beaches that the province has to offer! Sihanoukville certainly felt different to the hustle and bustle of Siem Reap. The region was a strange mishmash of city, countryside… Read More


Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog on Cambodia. Our last week in Siem Reap was an absolute blast and I’m so excited to tell you all about it!    Both of the groups have finished their projects: two new toilets have been built for some of the poorest families in the region. The moment… Read More

Hello everyone!   Camp just never gets less incredible. It’s been our last week in Turtle Cove so we’ve been trying to make the most of everything, but I never want to leave this paradise. Whilst it’s weird to think we won’t be staying much longer in camp, we’re all really looking forward to the… Read More


Hey guys!   I’ve now officially crossed the half way point and am closer to home than previously here in South Africa. It’s strange to think that soon I’ll no longer be waking up to African sunrises and elephants, I’m hoping the British summer will hold out until we get home (August 14th) but I’m not sure… Read More
