'Hello, my name is Charlotte. I'm an Emergency First Responder, may I help you?'- a phrase that has haunted me from one of the courses I've completed in my ten weeks in Madagascar as a mariner. So far I'm on week nine and it's crazy that it's so close to being over.
"To be honest, no picture nor blog could even come close to doing any of this experience justice, you just have to be there! The island has so much spirit and energy that just makes it the most unique place on earth."
The local Malagasy phrase, ‘Mora Mora’ literally meaning ‘slowly slowly,’ describes the relaxed pace of life here in Nosy Be, however my first three weeks on the island seem to have flown by!
I have been a marine vounteer for 7 weeks now and I had never in a million years expected to experience so much during my stay here in Madagascar.
I’ve taught English to Malagasy children on one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen, played ultimate frisbee with a local village and danced under the stars at the local beach bar...."
