Happy Birthday Doug!!!

Africa Service Bold Earth

Today we woke up nice and LATE! seriously! We slept in until 8:30 am! Those of us who slept outside under the beautiful stars — Bella, Sara, Erin, Matt, Danny, Jannick, Simon, Trevor, Bo, Max and Belen — woke up a little earlier to the beautiful pink and orange hues of the sunrise.

Africa Teen Volunteer Bold Earth

After a tasty egg and sausage breakfast, Bold Earth Teen Adventures toured the Swazi orphanage and were swarmed by children everywhere. Then we went to help at the local craft center where widows and disabled persons taught us some unique African crafts. We came back to our mountain top camp for lunch before heading out on a village walk to meet the local chief. Since its Doug’s birthday, Sarah gave Doug an excellent and much needed haircut with a stellar view over the valley.

While meeting with the chief, the boys got to sit on chairs by Swazi culture meant the girls had to sit on mats on the ground. After learning about the chief and his family, we headed to the soccer pitch to play with more Swazi kids!! Bella, Matt, Max, Erin, Doug, Simon, Ainsley, Trevor, Sara and Martina crushed it at the soccer game with Doug being MVP for his outstanding goalie skills!

Jannick, Bowen, Felix, Danny, Eathan, and Belen had so much fun with the kids playing around the field who were too young to compete!

We walked back to camp and Max and Simon carried Bella like a Swazi queen since she had rolled her ankle diving for an amazing save. We arrived at camp in time for an awesome traditional Swazi dance under the sunset.

Then, we all snuggled up before dinner around the fire for a super windy night and some special fire cake for Doug’s birthday. Ainsley led a great meeting under an upturned moon that looked like the Cheshire Cat grinning at us from across the Lebombo mountains.

it was so special to give back to the Swazi community and learn about their culture before we head back to South Africa tomorrow!

We love you so much!

Wild Coast Discovery – Bold Earth Teen Adventures

THE TOUGHEST GROUP OF SEA KAYAKERS EVER!

Wild Coast Discovery

Bold Earth Teen Adventures Sea Kayaking

It’s me, Will blogging about the day and what an awesome day it was.

Today, we woke up at 8 and had a nice breakfast, which consisted of cereal and fruit. We walked down to the beach and met the professional kayaking guides. Their names were Dan and Harrison.

Bold Earth Teen Adventures Costa Rica Teen Trip

Bold Earth Teen Adventures loving Wild Coast Discovery!

After going over the safety and getting used to the equipment and kayaks, we left the beach and started our kayaking journey towards “James Island.” We paddled by a cliff that had starfish of many different colors and sizes. One of the guides, Dan picked up a purple starfish, named him Carl and passed him around for everyone to see and touch. Lauren being a kayak guide from her past job talked about a bunch a cool sea life things like how the star fish have little pinchers on there top side to keep off barnacles and those pinchers grab on to your hair, it felt crazy when we out on our arm hairs.

After that, we started the long kayak to James Island. The kayak wasn’t too bad because we had water fights the entire way to the island. My boat consisted of myself, Mana, and Max G. Once we arrived at James Island, we had lunch, skipped rocks, went swimming, and took a few pictures.

On the way back, we had a few more water fights. Tyson, Holly, and Izzy were one of the boats that soaked people the most. That must had been the longest water fight I have ever had. We also had a race in which Harrison, the guide won.

As we were coming back to shore my boat started to talk with Jack, Jesse, and Brett in their boat about how long we could live out at sea.

We all took “showers”. As Beckett cooked the quesadillas, Louise and Toby sat with the rest of the cooking crew and we all talked. Everyone else was playing frisbee golf, Jesse won by a point.

After dinner, we had a great meeting. The question of the night was “what was you happiest moment in your life”. We had some real deep answers. Before the night ended Max S. and Nico told a funny story.

All in all, we had a fantastic day of kayaking and having fun.

Hi Mom and Dad,

Dear family and friends,

Another beautiful day in Sort. Waking up to the cool air and knowing that today we could further advance our Spanish was a great feeling.

After eating a yummy breakfast, filled with oatmeal and cereal, we scurried over to down town Sort for some more exploring. Sort is a wonderland of shops, restaurants, and beautiful views. Our whole group was exited to admire these expressions of nature as a single unit. All of the people in Sort are honest, trustworthy, and filled with integrity.

Once our unforgettable morning drew to an end, we trotted back to the campground to rid our camp of impurities and chow down on a traditional Spanish lunch.

Bold Earth Spain

Bold Earth SpainNext, we headed over to an ancient lake to give back to the local community. It was a great experience to pick up trash because we all knew that the lake can help the communities in so many ways trash free. When our bags were overflowed with trash, we knew our job was complete. We chilled on shore to play some games that progressed our teamwork and create bonds with friends!

In the bus ride home we harmonized on some songs. When we arrived at the trailer park, we all hopped in the shower as well as started to cook. As a team, we prepared a traditional tortilla española and tacos.

After the meal we all agreed it was the best yet. During dinner we all talked about our favorite meals on our awesome Bold Earth Spain Adventure Trip!

Bold Earth Summer fun in Europe

Bold Earth goes Zip lining in the Alps!

Allons à Via Ferratta!

Today  at Bold Earth Teen Adventures we started the day in Nice, France with a yummy breakfast of assorted cereals, toast and fruits. We took a subway and a train down to beautiful Monaco. It is really fun taking public transportation as a group because we feel like locals.

Bold Earth Teen Adventures

Biking around Europe with Bold Earth Teen Adventures and the Best Summer Camp!

In Monaco, we hiked to the top of the city to see the palace and gaze upon the amazing site of Montecarlo and the harbor filled with yachts. Later, in the evening meeting many people including myself admitted that the view was unbelievable and unlike anything they’ve ever seen. Jaydon described the famous Formula One race that zips through the city each year. While looking over Monaco, we settled down for a tasty lunch of ham, cheese, and chicken sandwiches with apples.

Bold Earth adventures!

Bold Earth in Europe!

On our way to the boarder of France and Itally we stopped to go Via Ferrata, or vertical hiking. We quite literally hiked up a cliff!

Thousands of feet above the ground, we climbed up the rock face. We stopped at the top of a mountain to eat lunch and enjoy the awe-inspiring view of the countryside and mountains. The climb also included two long zip lines between mountains, recorded by Ethan’s Go-pro! The entire experience was one of the best so far in our trip!

After the Via Ferratta, we arrived at our new campsite for the next 4 nights. Dinner was delicious, a Parmesan chicken dish prepared for us by Jaydon, Zach, Matt, Max, and Victor. After Dinner we joined in a Zumba dance party, before hitting the hay.

We are all extremely excited for what is meant to be the best Canyoning experience in the trip!

Bold Earth Teen Trip Deals

Today the Bold Earth Crew had a 4:45 am wake up call in Aguas Calientes in order to catch the first bus to Machu Picchu at 5:30 am. After arriving at Machu Picchu and following the complex trails, we quickly ascended to a promontory point above the sun temple in order to observe the sunrise. The beams of light were powerful and mesmerizing, and the entire camp stood in awe.

After this incredible moment, Marco, the Peruvian guide, explained the intricacies of this beautiful place, including the sun dial and the compass. Dasha and I were astounded at the astronomical and architectural accuracy of the Quechuan and Incan people at Machu Picchu. Myself, Maddie, Nathan, Florence, and Dasha trekked to the sun gate in order to experience the lost city from the perspective of a hiker on the Inca trail.

Meanwhile, Matt, Lea, Clem, and Ilana explored the lost city and entertained tourists with their card playing. after reuniting, the group went back to Aguas Calientes and ate fajitas for lunch. The group boarded the train for Ollantatambo, where Florence and Clem showed the group some French card games. this made the time fly and the group then boarded a bus bound for Cusco.

After arriving in Cusco at 5:30 pm, the group capped off the splendid day with a Chinese / Peruvian dinner. Between witnessing the magic of one of the seven wonders of the world, sharing international card games with friends, and eating great food, it was a memorable day.
