“You can travel as much as you want and go wherever you want, but you may not find a more likeable people anywhere. In their culture there is no hour for the dour and they go the extra mile with a smile.”
– Pacific Perspectives with Tom Plate, Asia Media Online
[singlepic=933,200,,,right]I have not come across a better statement when describing Thailand and its people. I have had the opportunity to travel to Thailand on three separate occasions, and each time I have found this thought to be true. The Thais are so proud of their culture and so honored to share it with visitors that you can not help but fall in love with their hospitality and their warmth.
For a year I had the opportunity to prepare volunteers for their Thailand experience through Cross-Cultural Solutions. After many years of traveling, it was only in 2006 that I decided to combine my travels with volunteering, and did so in Peru. Upon returning, I wanted to help others discover the wonders of combining traveling and volunteering, and found that opportunity with CCS.
