Our Peru gap team on the Villa Maria project last month. If only they’d seen this before making the film, Piers Brosnan wouldn’t have stood a chance!
I guess we must all be pretty intense as we have officially emerged on the other side of Sabie, South Africa (the “adrenaline phase” of the trip) in one piece. That isn’t to say that we didn’t have some close calls – Lily falling off a log with a river tube around her waist about […]

We spent […]
Friday 16th January. As it happened. 15:00 Further to yet another back breaking day on site, Mr. Alex (the head of the school board) proposes to the team that a Friday night football match should be played. Quest Overseas was to provide a team of Volunteers both male and female to challenge the might of […]
