Review for Frontier (Society for Environmental Exploration), Irvine, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

South East Asia Ethical Adventure Trail

My trip to Southeast Asia with Frontier was Fantastic!

Every moment and second of the trial from the word "go!" was thoroughly enjoyable. Everyday there was a basic outline of what activities we would be doing but it was also very dependent on what the volunteers fancied doing, so in that aspect it was always flexible and ideas for the itinerary were always welcome. It so happens that there was never any dispute about the activities that were set by the leader as they fitted perfectly to everybody's needs. Indisputably, some of the best experiences of my life.

The project in Siem Reap was Excellent. The teachers at FKC (Future of Khmer Children Organisation) were very friendly and always helped in class and with lesson plans. Such a great kindness from complete strangers who very often took us out to experience Khmer culture on our days off! I loved having the independence during the project to go off and explore Siem Reap, organise activities, get breakfast, lunch & dinner and mingle with the locals. It allowed me to grow as a person and showed how able i was coping on my own. Of course what really made it an amazing experience was all the people on the trial team who i consider as some of my dearest friends; it would have been a completely different experience without them. Definitely a lifetime experience! You get out of it as much as you put in so, i would recommend this trip to anyone with a need for adventure.
