Tracy Volunteer Abroad in La Serena, Chile Volunteers Abroad Reviews and Feedbacks http://feedback.abroaderview.org
What was the most difficult thing you experienced? the language barrier between my known Spanish and “Chilean” Spanish
What was the one thing that surprised you? the orphanage had such a constant loving staff. They were all cared for amazingly. Also that Chilean know how to make pizza, they were amazing at it.
Any tips for future volunteers… (clothing, travel, personal items, donations, sightseeing etc)
They take great care of you here. I came with bare necessities where I could have bought & used many of my comforts items from home. Bring an adapter that you know will work!
How would you describe/rate your experience with the host family? Loving host family! She took great care of us and her whole family did everything possible to help. My first night I was feeling cold and my host mother came in and gave me extra “booties” and a robe to keep me warm. She has a hair dryer for me to use and my own beautiful bedroom with Wifi. I felt a home. I was well taken care of all the time.
Are you willing to speak to other potential ABV volunteers? Yes
