Villa Maria Team – Farewell to Quito

Sidewinding west from Quito, nine travelers brave through dense obscurity and semi-regular downpours with hopes of catching a few radiating glints upon the beaches of Mompiche; spending their final weekend enjoy surf, sand…and the bar. With that being said, there was plenty of just cause for celebration, for not only have three weeks of continued […]

Physical Challenge

So the gauntlet is being thrown down.

But fret not, […]

Malawi Update 3

The Malawi Summer Team this year have been working so hard they haven’t had time to send us an update – especially taking into account the speed of internet in Blantyre… Nevertheless, at Quest we’ve endeavoured to get some details out of them so their followers don’t feel out of the loop.  The team finished […]
