My Antips Experience

Adam Burston, Lecturer, Cambodia

I was fortunate to travel to Cambodia in January 2011, as a Clinical Lecturer with a wonderful group of 3rd year nursing students from The University of Queensland.

 

I met some of the most beautiful and caring people, experienced the most wonderful sights, and  was able to form great relationships with many of my future nursing colleagues. Absolute favourite place - Angkor Wat, an absolutely  amazing temple. Most memorable experience – conducting health assessments in rural villages, it really makes you stop and think about our excessive Western culture. Most difficult experience - standing next to a particular tree at The Killing Fields (to this day it still brings tears to my eyes). The whole Cambodian experience was wonderful, enlightening, overwhelming and challenging; and  often all of these things in the same day! I can’t wait to get back there next year! Oh, and fish paste is evil. Thanks to Antipodeans, your wonderful organization and ‘on the ground’ support was crucial to the quality of our experience.
