I have been put out of my comfort zone and in return I am more wise, confident and warm. It was an absolute privilege to live with my host family for 2 months. I enjoyed playing with the children and teaching them. I also enjoyed coming home to a delicious meal, eating with the other volunteers, learning Khmer and meeting local people.
