Highlights of the trip:
The highlights of my trip was by far my host family. They were so welcoming and made being away from home that much easier. The other IVI volunteers I had the opportunity to meet was pretty cool as well. I went to the hot springs with a girl from Ireland and two from Australia. It was so much fun meeting people from all over the world. Also, the kids were so cute, it was hard not to fall in love with them. It was difficult to say my goodbyes to them, but I wouldn’t of wanted it any other way.
Comments on the team, food and accommodation:
The food and accommodation was by far my favorite part. I felt like I was part of the family and really enjoyed staying with a Fijian family. The greeting off the plane and the tour was really good. It made me feel very comfortable, knowing that someone was waiting for me when I got there. I also experienced a lot of light delays along the way and I was able to email you guys and get a response very quickly.
These ladies have so much love for the kids, but they need to utilize the volunteers more. We want to make a difference! Anything they need, we would be willing to do. These are just some things I seen why I was there that was concerning. Overall, I think you guys did great and I really don’t have any recommendations.
I want to thank you so much for this opportunity and I am so happy I had the chance to be involved.
