I spent many an hour sitting in my office back in Canada day dreaming about life as a humanitarian aid worker- travelling around the globe, living in new and interesting places and working with passionate/crazy people from all over the world. Certainly, as I am learning, there are also challenges to working in this field - spending the majority of your life away from friends and family, always on the move with no real base, constantly falling in love – with a country, a people, a culture – and having to say good-bye every 6, 12, 24 months to embark on the next adventure.
Thankfully, there are a lot of great bloggers writing from/about some of the most fascinating places on earth and sharing their experiences – both good and bad- about working in this field . Their stories and experiences have been a huge inspiration to me. So, for those of you who enjoy reading about other people’s adventures, or day dream about embarking on your own – I thought I’d occassionaly highlight blogs that I lived vicariously through and continue to enjoy reading ;0)
