Peru Community Project

I really liked the community service trip since I was helping people of the area. It makes one feel good because you are sharing your abilities along with theirs in building something better for them. You also get to see a beautiful country and a different way of life.

Cork Coast Cycle

Quiet roads lined with wild, deeply scented flowers, plunging coastline and rural landscapes, this tour encapsulates the essence of southern Ireland, from rolling green fields to spectacular coastal rides. West Cork is also best known for its colourful villages all of which are brightly painted in a wonderful array of vibrant colours, with hanging baskets brimming with flowers out the front of every pub and shop. This is the more cosmopolitan part of rural Ireland with many choosing to settle in this idyllic setting. After a visit to the colourful town of Kinsale, where artists mingle with fishermen, the cycle route heads back to Cork for a final evening. Staying in specially handpicked B&Bs and Inns, the trip offers a full Irish cultural experience.
