We all travel, some for pleasure, others for work and even more for the night life. But how many travel and stop to volunteer? and then how many people travel, volunteer and want to run a marathon or two while they’re at it huh?
Yeah pretty unique eh. Well Laura from www.awanderingsole.com is doing all three. She’s actually not long finished the Rome Marathon and has a few more planned before the end of her trip.
Laura is doing all this running for a good cause and you should check it out, I mean we can all spare $5 right?
Oh and the volunteering well she’s off to help out at an orphanage in Kenya again. Right now you have to be thinking to yourself, OMG this gal’s freaking amazing right? I bloody well hope so cos I’m pretty much flawed by her actions. One of those I’m not worthy to walk the same ground as her kinda moments.
Reading over Laura’s blog makes my trip seem pretty selfish. I’m just out there for me, looking to see the world and have a few beers as I go. I now hope I can work some volunteering into my plans even if small because it all counts.
Do you volunteer? would you? have you? I’d love to hear your thoughts oh and please check out Laura’s blog, as a personal favor to me. You can find it here www.awanderingsole.com
