Get educated, get fit and get inspired.
As travellers there’s so much we get from the world. Knowledge, wisdom, friends, sights, sounds, tastes, smells; there’s no dearth of experiences that find a way to touch us in a way that changes us forever. But when those same travels let you give back to the places you visit, to the people who open their home to you; it’s incredibly meaningful.
We’ve been increasingly looking into voluntourism opportunities around the world, and we’re so thrilled that our friends at Social Cycles have some incredible tours coming up! And any meaningful cycling holiday brought to you by someone who’s cycled across the world for charity is undoubtedly going to be awesome!
They’re offering 2 weeks of cycling across 500 kms between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. This sounds like the perfect way to explore your full potential, physically and emotionally as you explore the country and it’s cultural issues. It’s a great chance to to get up close with local charities and from the stories we’ve been hearing, it’s a most rewarding experience. While travelling close to the ground and getting to see the sights in the way it should be done, it’s also a responsible way to ensure your aid actually reaches the beneficiaries! And there’s nothing like the joy that comes out of seeing the difference you’re make.
This inaugural adventure departs Nov 21st and will cost $1290*.
The next one’s from 23rd January to 6th February 2016- AU$1,850 per person.
We’re already trying to figure a way to work this into our travel schedule and we’d recommend taking a holiday with a difference the next time you travel too!
