Volunteer work in Douala

A. My name is Nancy and I am part of the International Volunteers Group. I recently went to Douala for a mission to teach children on the slum areas. I uses British airways for my ticket. I acquired the return ticket from Brussels airport on my way home. The place is lively and full of exuberant colours as the people in Douala love to dress in fancy bright colours.

My first time in Africa

We finally planned a trip to Africa with my husband. We headed for Douala in Cameroon. We got our air ticket from British airways and return ticket from Brussels airways. We got ticket discounts from the travel agency we used. After a couple of hours on the air we finally reached the city. We were to stay in Douala for two nights before heading Limbe beach. Douala was brilliant, the people were extremely friendly. We tried out new foods and did so much shopping on African artefacts for souvenirs.
