Counting the days..
This trip is for me, though. Because at the end of 2016 I suddenly felt the urgent need to leave the speed of life for a while. To maybe even escape all the clear-cut habits and convictions I created myself. To look through another window at life. Another than my own, which I sometimes almost! believed as true. So yes, this trip is for me. To refresh :)
What is also me, is my inner drive to make a positive change in this world. To give something back to life and make it a little bit better. Therefore I won’t spend this trip sightseeing or backpacking (nothing wrong with that, by the way!), but full-time volunteering at an animal rescue shelter.
The shelter is called DAR “Dharamsala Animal Rescue” and is located in Rakkar, a small village near Dharamsala in the most northern part of India, the region Himachal Pradesh. It’s nearby the town McLeod Ganj where the Dalai Lama now lives, while being banned from Tibet. DAR focuses on stray animals, mainly dogs. They work with animal birth control, rabies vaccinations, a mobile clinic, humane education and street animal rescue. I will volunteer with them for a month, helping with all kind of daily tasks, but also working on a merchandise line for fund raising.
I’d love to share DAR’s story and create more awareness. I would also really like you to join me on my travel adventure! Therefore I start blogging on this subject from now on. I’ll use my social media and while being in India will try to post as many stories and photos as possible. I will also share information about DAR and their social media, so you can look them up if you feel like it.
Will you join me on this adventurous trip?
Oh, I've chosen to blog in English so all lovely people from DAR and other foreign friends can join in too !
