Taking a Summer Vacation?
Happy May! As summer approaches that means summer vacations by planes, trains or automobiles. Several years ago I learned of great ways to enjoy a vacation, but to also give back to the world. It’s called a Volunteer Vacation.
The concept is simple and it can all be worked out through different organizations. You decide where you want to travel. Then at each location the organization will coordinate for you to volunteer in that city and then the rest of the time is yours to spend enjoying the city.
These volunteer vacations are not in the United States and give you the opportunity to explore the world. I say get your passports ready and plan a Volunteer Vacation this summer!
As for me, I do plan to take a volunteer vacation in the very near future. I will use Global Crossroads to plan my trip. Here are five of the locations I wouldn’t mind vacationing:
- Costa Rica
- South Africa
- Sri Lanka
