Two days one blog!!!!

So I was struggling with Internet yesterday because well we’re on an remote island. So here’s yesterday’s no today’s blogs!   We woke to tropical rain bucketing down. The group was slow to get up this morning cutting it fine to the very last minute before it was veggimite time. As we were eating breakfast…



Lovely lazy start to the day with everyone slowly crawling out of bed. Around 10 we decided to go for a hike to a beach which was 40 minutes away. It was stinking hot which made the hike tough but once we arrived it’s was agreed that it was defiantly worth it as we arrived…



Sun sand and banter

Today we had a slow start as it is the weekend and our day off. The 7:30 sleep in was really appreciated across the board. After Brekki we jumped on the boat and headed over to another island for a day in the beach. It was a rocky crossing but for most loads of fun…



A new inspiration

So our task for today was to haul sand from the bottom of a hill to the top of the hill and into the school grounds. We carried about 50 bags each of sand each one weighing roughly 20kgs. So all up we carried around 750 bags of sand up the hill by lunch time!…

What a beautiful place to wake up in! We were woken up by crashing waves and falling coconuts a first for everyone I’m sure! As soon as we were up we put our heads in our books and continued to study. Coffee was what woke most people up making themselves a local Cambodian coffee (coffee…



A role call at our 6:15 breakfast time showed we were missing Riley and Neill who waltzed into the room 1 minute late at 6:16. And for being late they were rewarded with a spoonful of vegemite each! And judging by their facial expressions they weren’t a huge fan mwahahaha But finally we had the…
