Goal 1 - I have a list of places I want to visit this lifetime (Venice was one of them) so I decided I need to tick another place off the list and go there.
Goal 2 - I often feel a little helpless with the state of the world. Its silly I know, I cant save everyone, but I try. I work a lot with charity and am very interested in getting even more involved. So I also decided that I need to 'do more' .
So thinking about these two things I suddenly had a bit of a Eurkea moment and I realised that I can fulfil both of them at once.
I have decided to go to Ghana next year spring. This is one of the places on my list, as well as visiting I have been in touch with an orphanage out there that needs help and I'm going as a volunteer to help them. Ghana has over one million orphaned children so helping just a few of them will be very rewarding and humbling. I'm actually quite excitied.
Obviously nearer the time I'm going to write more details, and do a bit of a diary right here…so stay tuned!
