AVOID PDS! He only cares for the fee. School was closed in August. No project, he spoke suahili all the time, very impolite. Food needs were not met, dinner was a cucumber and bread. I decided to leave after 1 week, even if I paid 1 month. He answered “ I won’t let you go”, It began a nightmare, He threatened to report me to immigration because I had a volunteer visa, so I was under his responsibility? He called the local leader and started making false accusations in order to make me leave the country. I had to request assistance from my embassy. HE NEVER GAVE ME MY MONEY BACK!

Very nice person and great chef, you will really enjoy what he cooks. It wasn’t much to do what it was a problem. So he decided to do a deep clean, that it hadn’t been done for months and it wasn’t on his profile. He also wants you to be around all the time, there is not public transport which I knew in advanced and it was ok for working days , but for him that includes your days off, so that means that you are no supposed to go anywhere, what he told me when I came back from my days off ( just once in two weeks), when we talked before about I’d like to visit Mont Saint Michel.

No respetó la fecha acordada de llegada , tuve que alojarme por mi cuenta esa noche. Putu me recibió con una actitud agresiva. El alojamiento dos colchones en el suelo, que ocupaban toda la habitación, no había mas mobiliario, alguien entro en la habitación a cambiar las sabanas?? y me encontré mis cosas tiradas. Me contesto chillando, no era la respuesta que esperaba. No mantenía lo planificado la víspera. Iba a hablar con ella, para decirla que en esas condiciones y con esa actitud no iba a seguir, cuando por whatsapp me dice que me vaya. nunca volví a verla. Estuve dos días.

Om swasti astu, namaste, shalom, salamalekoum, be in peace, God loves you. You should pray, or try meditation, relaxation, yoga, something like that.

Mi pasión siempre ha sido viajar, he conocido más de treinta países, pero ahora se me presenta la ocasión de disfrutar de algo que antes no tenía y es tiempo. Esto me va a permitir viajar de otra manera muy diferente, disfrutando de la cultura y la gente, haciendo “slow travel”, aunque ya había tenido algunas experiencias con Worldpackers, esta vez he decidido recorrer el Sudeste asiático durante cuatro meses y medio sola, todo un reto en principio. Tenía muy claro que Vietnam iba a tener un lugar especial, así que dos meses los he pasado en distintas ciudades de Vietnam con Worldpackers, durante el resto recorreré otros siete países, unos serán a través de worldpackers y otros de turismo. Las experiencias que he vivido son indescriptibles, la gente que he conocido y todo me ha aportado algo positivo. No he llegado al ecuador de este viaje y ya estoy pensando cual va a ser el próximo, porque viajar se acaba convirtiendo en una necesidad y lo disfrutas por triplicado, cuando lo planificas, cuando lo vives y cuando vuelves a casa y recuerdas todo lo vivido. Como una vez leí en algún sitio, hay más conocimiento entre las páginas de un pasaporte que en cualquier libro.
