FriYAY and Siiiiiiiiiiick Circus Saturday!

Howdy all! Apologies for the late blog – I’ve been a little under the weather the past few days and have passed out as soon as my head hit the bed before I could write the blog 😖 I’m back now, though! Let me catch you up on what we’ve accomplished since Thursday – we…



Sunless sunrises & Angkor…. WHAT?

We made it through Thursday! Nobody was late for our 4am wake up calls amazingly, and we headed out towards the beautiful temple Angkor Wat to watch the sunrise. It was so dark when we got there that a few volunteers confused the temples with trees in the background! Unfortunately, it was too cloudy to…



Workout Wednesdays

The volunteer group this week is absolutely fantastic. With just a few days under our belt, we already feel SO comfortable with each other and work together so well. We jumped right into our work today without needing much guidance since we are all now pros! Yesterday’s theme for Tuesday was perfection. But today’s theme…



Flawless Tuesdays & Mud Queens

Another fantastic day for Reach Out! It’s strange that we just finished our second work day, since everybody is already so close and it feels like we have been together for so long. Yesterday I joked that Tuesdays are always perfect and nothing can ever go wrong on a Tuesday… This ┬ámakes this morning especially…



Work hard, play hard, eat hard, shop hard!

Village down next elephants!!

Last day in the community is always hard. We bond with the kids, the families and the teachers and no one ever wants to leave. To finish the week off, we got the concrete frame and the wood frame for the roof up. We also finished leveling the ground off, and we got the first…



ANGKOR WAT

Ready….GO! 4am wake up, 430am leave for Angkor Wat, 5:30am watch Sunrise (one of the most beautiful sites), 6:15am eat breakfast (PANCAKES OMG YES). Then until 11:30am explore the temples ALL THREE OF THEM. This morning was intense and amazing, we went and saw one of the seven wonders of the world which included Angkor…
