Where is NICARAGUA

Where is NICARAGUA

NICARAGUA, 3 March – 11 March.

9-day and 8-night stay
Approximately £450.00

The act of giving is part and parcel to our nature. Want proof? Take a full-immersion Manifest Foundation “Voluntour” to La Paz and La Primavera, Nicaragua. On this 9-day, 8-night service trip you’ll stay with a host family, interact, eat, dance, laugh, contribute your time and energy to improve their circumstances and fully experience what life is like in each region.

What’s more, you’ll support projects by Women in Action (WIA), a local group dedicated to teaching others how to implement and create projects to help fund education and housing. Education is just one of the disparities in Nicaragua. A majority of children do not attend school because of the cost—school is not free, and books and uniforms are an added expense. La Paz and La Primavera are also marked by poverty and pollution. WIA efforts help eliminate standing water in the streets and provide micro-lending and sponsorships to others seeking to improve their conditions. As a volunteer, you’ll also support Compas de Nicaragua (Friends of Nicaragua), by helping create new biogas cooking units to counter deforestation.

This trip may not only change your perspective, but your purpose. You’ll bear witness to a culture rich in tradition, strength and hope. When the pattern of your experience is woven with the lives of others, you’ll discover something remarkable: despite nationality or upbringing, economic differences or environment, we are all cut from the same cloth. Which just goes to show, the more we give to others, the more we understand ourselves.

rccl brilliance of the seas7-night Middle East cruise on the RCCL Brilliance of the Seas 5 – 12 March.

Approximately £225.00

The largest of the seven emirates by area, Abu Dhabi accounts for more than 80% of the total land area of the United Arab Emirates. This emirate combines tranquil beaches and desert oases with some of the most vibrant city life in all the UAE. It’s hard to believe Abu Dhabi was just a quiet fishing and pearling village for centuries. But seeing is believing! The discovery of oil has recently transformed this capital city into one of the wealthiest and safest tourist destinations in the world.

rccl brilliance of the seasAs one of the Middle East’s oldest cities – dating back to the 2nd century AD –Muscat has been open to tourists for only a few decades. From the beautifully manicured parks and long, unspoiled stretches of beach to the stone moat that still surrounds the area, it is clear that Oman’s monarchy has worked hard to protect the rich history and small, safe neighborhood feel of its capital city. This cruise will be a DreamTrip to remember.
