I highly enjoyed working with the elephants. Those days were completely unique and living so close to them was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I also loved working with the students at the temple in Bangkok. I wish we were able to have more time with them there.
The week at the islands was amazing and a great end to the trip. Additionally, all of the extra excursions that our program leader had planned for us (such as Muay Thai class, visiting the bat cave and temples) were amazing!
I loved all the volunteer work. I do wish I was able to do more, especially during the week working with the children at the daycare. It might have been because we were a big group of volunteers but I would have liked to have more responsibilities during our stay in Surin to feel like I was more useful and made an impact.
The location was the best part of the accommodation. The staff was very friendly and supportive. They made the program easier and smooth. I would recommend VolSol to anyone I know is willing to volunteer abroad; mostly because of the variety of programs.
