"Pictures and Projects"
My first experience with volunteer travel was nothing short of incredible. It is so fulfilling to be able to participate in such a wide variety of projects that contribute to healthy, happy communities as well as sustainable living. I was able to plant, grow, build, harvest, teach, sew, lift, dig, paint, research, cook, clean, connect and play. Doing the work alongside others is a big reward. I wish I was able to capture more of the projects and processes on film. However, being there in the moment is enough to remember. Work hard, play hard and keep your eyes wide open the whole time!
Hello Mrs. Bayda,
I am a student at the University of South Alabama majoring in Elementary Education. Upon reading your blog, I must say that what you do is very rewarding. You get to travel to many different countries, learning about the many different cultures, food, languages they speak, and the different “learning styles” and schools in each country. I would absolutely love to be able to travel to different countries and teach. The interaction of children in different cultures and how they learn, and what they do, and just the different teaching styles and methods is enough to put a smile on anyone’s face at the end of the day. It takes a special person to be able to do what you do, to travel to different countries and teach because all the children are different in how they learn in each country. Not everyone can do that. I really enjoyed reading your blog, and I look forward to reading more of what you write in the future.

"2010 In Review"
The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health: A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 5,000 times in 2010. That’s about 12 full 747s. In 2010, there were 48 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 345 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 366mb. That’s about 7 pictures per week. The busiest day of the year was May 29th with 154 views. The most popular post that day was untitled. Where did they come from? The top referring sites in 2010 were johnstrange.com, twitter.com, ecmp355.ning.com, google.ca, and facebook.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for morgan bayda, jeopardy labs, self portraits grade 2, geometric portraits, and “morgan bayda”.
