27 November 2007 - 3 March 2008

We left Ottawa on November 19, 2007 to travel to the Philippines for three months of travel and work. December was our month to volunteer with the Center for Education, Research and Volunteering Philippines (CERV) a small NGO affiliated with Global Volunteer Network (GVN), an umbrella organization run out of New Zealand with projects all over the world. When we left our project in January we had another two months to explore the Philippines. That was the main thrust of our travels this year, sandwiched between visits to Paris, France at the beginning and end of our trip to visit our daughter and her family.

We volunteered under the umbrella volunteer organization, Global Volunteer Network (GVN), now known as "Travel With A Challenge" with projects all over the world.
