It Begins!

G’day guys,

I’m John, your Team Leader for the Cambodia Village and Elephant program and I’m excited to show you all my home away from home! I’m from the great state of NY, USA and have decided to trade the blizzards and snow shoveling this winter for Elephants and Coconuts.

I’ve been working with Reach Out Volunteers for a year now and it has been a life changing experience. I’ve traveled all over the world to 5 of the 7 continents (Can you guess which ones are left??) and Cambodia is by far my favorite country!

Aside from traveling, I’m also an avid amateur Ukulele player (I only know one song…) and passionate about wildlife conservation and international development. Also if by some small chance anybody speaks some Arabic I could really use some practice!

I’ll be updating and checking this blog everyday throughout program, so If you have any thoughts or comments please leave them in the comments section and I’ll try to answer back in a timely manner


Also All 20 volunteers have arrived! Lauren was the last one in at 9PM!


Tomorrow we start bright and early!


Steffy, Claire, Jarnah,  and Tazia on their way to Siem Reap!
