In a few days I will finally be leaving for Malaysia on a volunteering program (see my earlier post). Needless to say I’m very excited and more and more conscious, as departure approaches, this will prove a great experience from which I will learn a lot.
In a few weeks I’ll be leaving on another great trip… this time not for tourism but on a much more serious challenge. Together with eight other great people from around the world (Yolanda, Maya, Priscilla, Etienne, Masaru, Trin, Kevin, Dennis) I’ll be part of a Corporate Service Corps team to Malaysia.
A few weeks ago a friend pointed me to a movie available on YouTube called Home. I was expecting just an interesting environmentalist movie… what I found is an extraordinary piece of work. Issues affecting environment and life on our planet are described through absolutely stunning aerial views and an inspiring soundtrack.
I’ve just finished reading Richard Branson’s autobiography “Losing My Virginity” (the 2005 updated edition). It was a very enjoyable read: Branson’s life is undoubtely fascinating and the book is well written, quickly becoming a page-turner.
