People Make the Place.

Travel can feed your curiosity, and also your soul. It’s becoming a big trend these days to spend part of your vacation time volunteering in a foreign country, and then spend the rest of your trip seeing the sights…

My friend Margo, for example, recently returned from Peru where she spent one week teaching English to a group of school kids, and then took a week afterwards to climb up to Machu Pichu.  She returned home with a happy heart, lots of new friends and pen-pals, and some spectacular photos of the people and places she fell in love with. Next time, she’ll hit St. Lucia with her mom to help build grade schools before relaxing on the beach.

Global Volunteers operates year-round in 20 countries on 6 continents, so you can pick a place you’ve always wanted to see–and help make it a little better while you’re there by caring for children, painting, building or repairing buildings, teaching English or assisting with health care.

It’s a fantastic way to deepen your appreciation of the world, while making a difference in your own small way. To find out more, visit

Happy Travels, and I hope you’re our next winner in the Trip Anywhere In The World contest!

    Travel…not only fuels, feeds the soul…it to me is paramount in education! we need to learn more of other people, cultures, cuisine, language, religion to see we are more alike than not and this can bring unity amongst us.

    Helping others. enjoying the moment, and making a difference means everything. Giving to others in need, is always heartwarming to the soul, mind, and to the world.
