My Travel Story

by: Sophie Langham Start Date: Jun 27, 2017 - End Date: Oct 26, 2017
I've been given the oppurtunity to furfill a life long dream to visit Borneo on an volunteer expedition for 21 days with my school. Borneo is the third largest island in the world, the largest island in Asia and is about the same size as the state of Texas and is home to the largest mountain of any island and some of the earth's most ancient rainforests. This will be a life changing experience for me and my peers. We will be staying mostly in kota kinabalu ( also known as KK) with the locals, learning about their culture, getting to know them and assisting with what they need help with in the village.It will be amazing to meet new people , the kind of people I wouldn't usually meet on a daily basis. I'm so excited at the chance of meeting the villagers, helping them and livng their life.

I will experience a completely different side of life to the one I'm currently living.
Im hopeing this trip will bring a brand new apprieciation to what I have, learn to give more gratitude.
I will be pushed to try new things and i will do things that i have never done/ couldnt do in Britain.
Fingers crossed , there is some lovely kind people out there willing to help me reach me goal!!
