Bye Bye Interns

On Wednesday we said goodbye to the three long-term interns Christina, Dennis and Jeremias, who gave us great support for a year. After the debriefing they are now heading back to Germany.
Here is an excerpt from their report:

“On the 6th of July we had the pleasure to go on our last volunteer trip this year.
First we drove to the ‘Mae On Cave’ where after a a few stairs we took a look at the very impressive cave with alot of shrines.
Lucky to be out of the cave unharmed we enjoyed lunch at San Kam hot springs, where we relaxed in the hot water and reflected on last year’s experiences.
We came to realize that we left Germany with a lot of expectations about Thailand – some of them justified while others turned out not to be true at all.
But we also realized that we will return to Germany with valuable experience, new perspectives and a love for Thailand. Sadly we also have to leave our new family and friends behind.
To end this very fun day we enjoyed dinner at the Vietnamese restauraunt VT Namnueng which was incredibly delicious.
We are very thankful that we could spend a year teaching in Thailand and definitively learned a lot more than we could ever teach.”

We wish you all the best for the future and would be glad if you visit us again!
Now we are looking forward to the next four interns, who will start their journey in our projects at the end of the month!
