The page i've been reading since 2008.....
From the saying "The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page" by Saint Augustine. In my sense i think every country of this world owns a page in this book. I have only and still am reading one page in the whole book which is "UGANDA"
Many people started traveling since the early ages when some of us were or weren't even born and when i speak frankly most of us want to travel every corner of this world to get to know and explore the beauty that lies behind it. Now going back to "The World is a Book" saying, when we are reading a book we often read every single line carefully to completely understand the contents written and we want to always feel it with all our hearts during the reading, am i right?
My Page and its Experience.........
Over the past four years I have visited many towns, villages and amazing places of Uganda, all of which have different life experiences. Having first-hand experience of these villages and towns that are not even half of my page, i have been able to know what everyone's lifestyle means to their society and family.
Choosing how to travel......
There are often many ways to travel and get to read some of the world's pages that inspire and we dream about, you could go as a tourist and get to see the places,landscapes and Wildlife and have the experience. Or you could choose to go on a voluntourist trip and get to live beside the locals within these landscapes and villages where you get the opportunity to experience the real life they live everyday and of course their culture!.
Why many Choose to be Voluntourists?
In my opinion choosing to travel as a voluntourist is one great experience every traveler should experience. All of us have the passion to act in a humanitarian capacity at least once in our lives; many of us feel the noble urge to give back to society, especially if life has given so much to you already. People decide to volunteer and give back for many different reasons; there are those who do it for personal reasons, while there are also those who do it just to get ahead in life.
This is how i read my page and keep enjoying it....
In my page i only look at the faces that deserve a smile and try to actually bring one on their beautiful faces and i do all this with of course the help of the world, people who always come here to work with me. The ones who feel it is worthy to volunteer and they all become part of my story, if you have the desire.. i can help you create it's reality and read completely the page Uganda, join me now; www.mzunguvolunteers.org
