Hi Shell,

I thought volunteering work would be a great way to get to know more people. I haven't done much research into it though, its just something i might consider doing. I haven't booked anything yet just have an idea of when i want to go so if you want to chat more about being travel buddies, add me as a friend.

also bricking it!!...

Hi Girls, I'm another Irish girl heading to Thailand and Oz in March/ April, I am also looking into going volunteering, I have been in with USIT last week, there was one in Northern Thailand working in an orphanage, the programme has recently changed, it used to be minimum of one month but now it's a maximum of two weeks at a time, the volunteer man said he's not sure of the prices yet because of the changes! What organisations have you looked into? Was also looking into volunteering at the elephant sanctuary in Thailand, my friend has been there and said it was amazing... I'm hoping to do both, I think after doing the two volunteering programmed I won't have to do any more good deeds for the rest if the year Ha!!! The plan is to travel for a few weeks around Thailand before going to Australia! It would be great to meet up with some others before heading over, think it would make it a little less nerve wreaking!!!
