Travel Comments

Hi Sara, Thank you for being so gracious. Not only will I contact you for our next trip, I will give your contact information to anyone I know who is planning a trip to China. You have been a wonderful friend and business partner!

Dear Nancy, it has been a most amazing experience. Not just meeting and working with the pandas, but learning about the culture and society of China. The volunteers are friendly and fun to hang out with, so evenings are pretty great. I think it's fair to say that I've had a few culture shocks, so much here is different from my home in Sweden, but I've had a great time discovering these differences. I definitely want to come back someday!
