My Travel Story

by: Emma Auernigg Start Date: Jul 12, 2016 - End Date: Jul 11, 2017

Hi! My name is Emma. I'm currently 18 years old and have a dream for traveling.

Ever since I was young it has been my dream to travel, to explore the world and now my big dream is finally coming true.. however i could use a little help along the way! Flights, accomadation, living expenses and paying to volunteer itself can get pretty expensive when it all adds up!

I'm taking a gap year at the moment before I further on my education in University, which i will be studying Film Studies at the university of Brighton. At the moment i am working full time and selling my photography work to save up for this big adventure that i am hoping to go on! I'm hoping to visit Thailand, South Africa and Cambodia over a 5 month period!

In these three countries i will be doing volenteering work that involves working with elephants and teaching children how to speak English by obtaining TEFL teaching (Teaching English as a Foreign Language qualification). I'm hoping to also focus on my phogoraphy work in these countries by photographing the loacal communities and the adventures that i get upto and posting them onto a travel blog.

I'm very passionate about this project as by volenteering it's not also making my dreams come true, i'm also volenteering in places that need the help. I've chosen these destianations as they have always fascinated me from a young age, they have always been on my list of countries to tick off my list and the fact that i get to help these countries whilst doing so is absolutely incredible!

This is all so meaningful to me as it has been my lifelong dream, one that i'm finally going to complete. It would be amazing to be able to say and know that i have helped other people lives for the better in this crazy gap year of mine and if you would like to contribute to this amazing trip of mine i would be very greatful!

Thankyou,
Emma xx
