Finished my two week volunteering project teaching English today. Was an absolute pleasure to work alongside these lovely ladies, managing to build relationships despite the massive language barrier! They give elegance a whole new meaning #teachersday #teachingenglish #travelexperiences #volunteering #ivhqvietnam #travel
One of my favorite parts of volunteering abroad is all the cool people you meet along the way. New friends from Belgium, Denmark, Australia, Canada and Zimbabwe. Tag a friend you met abroad! @ivhq #volunteerabroad #vietnam #internationallove
