Nepal - Quick Facts
Although Nepal was not on my bucket list in the beginning I immediately fell in love with this colorful, vibrant country and its lovely people. After some trekking in the Himalayas I had the great opportunity to work as a volunteer in Kathmandu. Volunteering Solutions helped me with the placement and made me feel very welcome from the first day on. They even arranged an orientation week for me.A heartwarming experience thanks to Volunteering Solutions. Saying good bye to wonderful Nepal and the lovely kids was very difficult for me, hope to come back one day !!
