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


Hola    So now we have returned for our final 10 days in Havana, in which we will be volunteering.    We spent 2 more days in Trinidad since I last gave you an update. On Tuesday we cycled to the coast – a classic Cuban picturesque white sanded beach where we spent most of… Read More
