Joe Lovell-McNamee, Gap Year

Joe joined our programme in the town of Yangshuo in the summer of 2013 and 2014, please read on for his feedback.


Can you tell me about some of your most enjoyable moments of the trip?

I really enjoyed getting to know the other participants, and socialising with them. Also the trips to Longsheng Rice Terraces and the river drifting were extremely fun, and I’d recommend them to anybody visiting Yangshuo or nearby. As mentioned the river drifting was really entertaining, as well as the numerous trips to the caves that we took the kids to. I also enjoyed the camping trip to the island. I think it gave me confidence and due to the responsibility required raised my level of maturity, I also made some great friendships whilst I was there. I would definitely recommend the trip to someone!
