6. How would you describe your accommodation, meals, security?
Very similar to an up class hotel as I was the only person in the room.

7. What was your memory of this trip?
I came on this trip with the intention of trekking Mt. Everest. It so happened that our host found us a guide while the founder of the orphanage has successful reached the summit 3 times.

How was the information you received from ABV prior to traveling? (Emails, website, support) was there anything missing or should be included to prepare other volunteers?
The website is well organized with information clearly presented in the My Account. This allowed me to contact the host prior to the departure to make sure everything works out ok.
