Time of my life

My project to Rishikesh was amazing. Being a student, signing up for a budget project was very important for me. The Tarzan Way charged very less and I got my meals and stay included in the project fees. Before arriving in India, I hadn't expected super comfortable accommodation or meals considéringnth low cost. I was pleasantly surprised to see that that was not the case. Not only was my guesthouse super comfortable, but it was also located right across the river Ganga and I would go sit at the river banks every weekend with the other volunteers. The food was also pretty good and the cook knew how to make lots of different dishes. I ended up trying a different Indian dish every day.
Rishikesh is pretty famous for its' adventure sports so I ended up going for an adventure camp and river rafting. My coordinator from The Tarzan Way was really helpful in arranging all of these for me.
I will definitely cherish my experience in India for a very long time.
