Special Note from Janice
I have visited other countries as your typical tourist as well as an ecotourist. I
thought the experience as an ecotourist was the most amazing thing ever – until i came to Thailand.
After experiencing Thailand as a volunteer/study tourist, i am ruined for any other kind of tourism. I have never had such an opportunity to be immersed in a culture before. I didn’t know what to expect, nor do i understand what i expected, but this opportunity exceeded anything i could have imagined. I have fallen in love with Thailand for what it truly id, not for the party, shopping or sights other tourists see. I have also fallen in love with voluntourism and i guarantee i will be doing it again. I feel i will also return to Thailand and that i have a vested interest in checking in on the villages, schools and temple i have visited.
So for everyone working at Andaman Discoveries because you believe in what it is doing, take my word for it : your efforts, troubles, frustrations, triumphs and hardwork are not wasted and villages, communities, volunteers and you all reap the rewards. Thank you for having me!
Thank you, especially Tui, for joining me and translating and enriching my experience. I will take up the cause of Andaman Discoveries and do everything i can to support, assist and market it. Please keep in touch and feel free to contact me if you think there is any thing i can do.
