    5.0 - Excellent

    I travelled to the Seychelles with Global Vision International for 1 month last October doing a Marine Conservation Project, how would I describe this experience - life changing and by far the most rewarding thing I have done in my life so far! The work GVI carry out on project is exceptional and to be part of such a great cause in one of the most beautiful locations in the world was amazing. I strongly recommend anyone if they are looking to do something similar to do it with GVI.

    Traveling with GVI is the best experience I've ever had. This trip made me feel alive like never before. We were diving almost every day, heard music, danced and laughed. The people on the program was kind and good people. I felt like I made a difference for the reef with the GVI. I didn't only just have amazing dives, but also made a difference. The transportation, the meals, and the accommodation wasn't excellent. We drove around in a old white van on the most dangerous roads I've ever experienced in my life! But I have had the most excellent times in that van. The meals definitely weren't excellent. I like meat and only got it on Mondays and Thursdays. But what I learned about my self and food was excellent. I learned to appreciate my meals much more. And I hoped I didn't have to say this out loud, but I really like beans now... :-D The accommodation, too, made me appreciate my own bed even more. But it is all a part of living somewhere else and I wouldn't have changed a thing. All over it has been an adventure so amazing I have a hard time finding the words most suitable.
