Satisfy your inner travel bug and your humanitarian side by volunteering your time and skills overseas. Spend a week getting down and dirty helping build communities from the ground up in Kenya, or take on the role of English teacher for a fortnight at a Buddhist monastery in Nepal. Chances are you will learn just as much as the young monks you are working with! If you have a strong eco conscience, joining a sea turtle conversation program in Costa Rica might be your calling.
