So that’s it – after an entire year of preparation, my African adventure is over. The final few days of my trip were the best by far, and I can’t believe how quickly the time went. I felt like I’d only just arrived, but equally I was so used to the lifestyle I felt like I’d been there for months. Here’s what I got up to on safari and at the opening day of the playground.
The second week of my African adventure has flown by, and I can’t believe the experiences I’ve had in the past few days and that I only have another few left. But yesterday I actually came face to face with an endangered mountain gorilla! Here’s what I’ve been up to since completing the East African Playgrounds charity project at Huda school in Uganda.

It’s day 8 of my Ugandan adventure and finally, after more than a week of no electricity, let alone internet, I’ve finished my project with East African Playgrounds! Have a read of what I’ve been up to so far (oh, and Andy says hi).
Over the summer, I made the difficult decision to have to step down from some of my editorial positions before I start my finals this year (tomorrow, actually). I decided that holding six editorial positions was a little too much commitment if I want to do really well in my academic work, so for once, I put my degree first (I know, I’m just as surprised as you are).

Here I am going to write a little about my experiences to give a brief overview of what I learned from the three weeks, if you’re interested – and of course, in case you’re considering applying to any of them!

So, this brings me to the end of my travels across Central America. I can confirm that I am now officially home and safe (relieved sighs all round)!
When I think back over today and my first experience of the world’s adventure capital, it feels truly surreal. It has been one of the most incredible days of my life for certain.
I recently made the choice to travel across central America this summer, and it was one of the biggest decisions I’ve ever made. It was hugely scary, considering I’m spending a massive amount of money on an unknown area and I’ll be without my friends! However, here are the reasons which convinced me, and I hope they’ll convince you.
