 March on Travelocity!

Every month I use my 20 years of travel experience to write for aggregator giant, Travelocity. They call us the Gnational Gnomads. These are excerpts of those stories.

Volunteering Solo: One Woman’s Inspiring Story

Volunteering with a partner has many benefits; however, sometimes you may find yourself on a solo vacation wanting to reach out to those around you. An opportunity comes and you want to perform an act of kindness. What does volunteering solo look like?

There is a beautiful woman I have known for many years. We first met in the snowy mountains of Romania. I had known about her blog online and invited her and her son to celebrate Christmas with us. Her warmth and genuine compassion for people was an inspiration for my little family and I knew she would be a friend forever.

Fast forward 5 years later and I recalled the amazing stories she shared with me. And now I want to share them with you. This article is an interview with Exploramum.

The questions:

1. Please share with us a little about yourself.

2. What does volunteering mean to you?

3. Which countries do you find yourself volunteering in and why?

4. Is your volunteering spontaneous or planned out?

5. How does volunteering solo make you feel? Do you feel it makes a difference?

6. How does your 10-year-old son feel about the work you do?

7. Where do you see your volunteer work headed?

    I always wanted to be a volunteer whether as a solo or in a group in South Africa and Haiti. Hope that my remote career will go smoothly so I can pursue my heart’s desire. No one can beat the happiness when you’ll able to help other people.

  • […] Along Cavill Avenue and the beachfront, you may also want to spend a minute helping one of the street folk that now call this place home.  With almost perfect weather, the sandy beaches often become the destination for those on a tight budget, and a great place where you can perform a random act of kindness.
