“Tracey and Jim, what does travelling mean to you?
It’s a chance to explore, to connect, to listen, to understand, to be. It’s about self-growth and enjoying challenges – whether that’s looking after a farm in Normandy, learning Spanish in Bolivia, or helping to run a guesthouse in Cape Town, South Africa. We love to ‘live local’, stay a while, and get to know people. That’s why Servas is ideal for us. We’ll never forget the time we stayed with a Servas host – a Hindu housewife in India. She showed us her private temple and talked of her dreams to work in child care. She gave us cake from the recent Diwali festival, and told us we were lucky because we’d come from Europe and now here we were eating cake blessed by god; that god must have meant us to have it. Such experiences are precious. We’ve been travelling for five years now – on and off – and have experienced so much; and we hope to keep going for many more.”
