Well, I’m back (and in dire need of a holiday to recover 🙂 ) It was a great few weeks, the culmination of an 18 month project I’ve been working on and I can’t quite believe it’s (almost) all over.
I led a group of 3 other adults and 16 teenagers out to Urubamba, Peru, where we worked with a fantastic charity called Kiya Survivors for 2 weeks. We planned and fundraised the whole project ourselves from scratch and as we’re all volunteers, the sense of satisfaction has been enormous. It was a LOT of work and the learning curve was very steep – I reckon I’ve easily spent an average of one working day a week on it, not including the 4 weeks unpaid leave I’ve just had 🙂 (Personally, there’s no way I could have managed it without the freedom and flexibility of being freelance – although there are those that do manage it!).
A girl’s gotta balance her “me-lance”life with something, right?!
