I booked my trip to Thailand to take part in the elephant conservation because I have always loved elephants and wanted to do something worthwhile with my 6 week holiday. I chose GVI as there dates fitted me best and were priced better than most. The pre-departure team are amazing and they all help massively in any way they can. Once in Thailand I made some amazing friends instantly which is made easier by the outstanding field team who all help you integrate very quickly. The weird thing was I went there for elephants but didn't expect to have such an amazing time, and I also didn't expect to love the community as much as I did. I fell in love with the people of Huay Pakoot and leaving them was the hardest part. After my 4 weeks in Thailand I departed for Singapore and was then due to go on to China. In a moment of madness sat in my Singapore hostel, I rang GVI and arranged to extend a further 2 weeks in Thailand. This was such a good decision as I loved every minute of being there. I have already planned to go back and to finish off would just like to thank GVI for giving me such an amazing time and changing my life.
