once in a lifetime

PoD were incredible and could not do enough for us, Gemma was always there if I had some silly little question, emailing back with lightning speed! I loved the volunteering in Thailand, it really opened my eyes and changed me as a person, for the better. I could not have wished for a better experience for my first time travelling in a completely different country and I would recommend it to anyone, it was an awesome way to see the real Thailand. It was such an honour to be the only westerners in the area and to be welcomed into a families home (as well as having all the teachers come to our resort for a meal and karaoke!). We were an amazing team and I have definitely made some friends for life. I can't wait to volunteer again. Thank you for everything Gemma and the rest of PoD!!!
