Hello everyone. I am so glad I stumbled across this brilliant site by accident whilst looking for information about Ghana. What an excellent source of travel information - by the traveller, for the traveller.

I am 66 and live in Leeds. Have done quite a bit of travelling to a number of different countries in recent years, backpacking with my friend.
My next big adventure is some volunteer work in an orphanage in Ghana on 19th January 09. I will be going on my own and am very excited but also very very apprehensive.

I am looking forward to exploring the site as well as putting in some input.

Hey karentids,

It's cool to have you here! How long will you be going to Ghana? It sounds like it would be an amazing experience, but I can understand why you'd feel apprehensive. Have you ever done volunteer work before?

To help you research Ghana, you could try the Ghana travel guide or ask advice from one of the Ghana travel helpers. By the way, the guide is something you can edit, so after you've visited Ghana you can actually add information you discover while there!
