One of the best experiences of my life

I spent three months volunteering at the bear sanctuary in Romania. The location and the work is done there is amazing, and truly inspiring. It was incredible to be so close to the bears on a daily basis, and to help directly in their welfare. We learned all about their backgrounds and how the sanctuary is working to protect bears in Eastern Europe. Romania itself is a stunning country, and it was great to be able to explore the mountains, the cities and the villages at the weekends. Oyster were fantastic and offered great support. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
