    I was a volunteer in the Galapagos Islands for three months, including some travel around Ecuador.
  7. Was it difficult?: yes
    Why or why not?
    The reality is that living in the third world is difficult, whether it is paradise like Galapagos or not. From the corruption you face daily or the cold showers, it’s hard, but oh so definitely worth it!

    I wish I would have known more of what I was getting into (teaching english is hard!), and learned more Spanish.
