I do like someone who knows what he wants and once decided, goes for it. I received an email yesterday around the middle of the day from Nick enquiring about sports coaching in South Africa. To cut a long story short, within a few hours he was booked on a flight this Friday, arriving to start on this Saturday 15th January for a 5-week placement! No messing, just this is what I want, I book the placement, get the flight, and away I go!
A flurry of emails has been going back and forwards, not just between Volunteer Vacations and Nick but also with South Africa. A kit list is always useful just to concentrate the mind when packing – I forgot to mention the head torch, my favourite, as I like to read in bed and previously in Africa have experienced lots of power cuts (mostly in Tanzania) but it is always good to be prepared.
I hope Nick will send us updates for the Blog – watch this space!
