In the days before my flight to Kathmandu, I didn’t know what to think or how to feel. I was a mixture of excitement and a little bit of “oh boy what did I get myself into.” My biggest fear was being overwhelmed by loneliness, having that ache for human friendship that so often haunts us. After all, I was launching myself into an isolated community in the mountains to teach where I couldn’t even communicate the native language. I was bound to feel a little out-of-place.
At Sherpa Adventure Gear we are happy to provide Trek to Teach volunteers with apparel and gear for their travels, knowing that access to education can change the world, and are excited to share one of their recent volunteer’s experiences with you.
