28 July - 17 August, 2017
Songs and laughter and many new friendships characterised the visit by London and South East England Region's international opportunities group. This girl-guiding UK group was made up of 14 - 18 year olds, selected especially for the international expereince facilitated by Traidhos Barge Program with collaboration from The Girl Guide and Girl Scout Association of Thailand. (GGAT)
The group lived aboard the Barge as it travelled between bangkok and Ayutthaya before taking the overnight train to Chiang Mai, where they explored about Thai elephants, enjoyed a cookery class with Traidhos Cooking Academy and participated in a kantok dinner. They supported GGAT with some redecorating work at the Wiang Pa Pao substation in Chiang Rai before travelling to Krabi to explore the caves and mangrove forests and meet members of the Girl Guide and Girl Scout Association.
After nearly three weeks, there were many tears as the girls went through the airport. Remember us in the future.... perhaps you can join us as an intern!!!
