Volunteering and Adventure in Australia!
One day while sitting in a lecture hall for an economics class two Aussies representing a volunteer organization gave a 5 minute presentation about the volunteer and travel opportunities available through their group, including Australia. I had never traveled abroad before and the idea of Australia always appealed to me, so I signed up. The trip included 2 weeks of volunteering in a not-yet-determined locale within the country and 2 weeks of adventure activities along the east coast of Australia, from Cairns down to Sydney. I ended up being a part of a unique experience to volunteer in The Outback (Alice Springs) and our group was fortunate to get to see parts of the country many other travelers do not. As the trip ended I walked away with a life changing experience that has helped define my travel philosophies for life.
