I talk to Alex, one of the founders of Socialbnb, a platform that connects travelers with small NGOs. You will learn about them and you we can rethink travel. I asked him:
How everything started with Mr. Thy and his school in Cambodia and how it inspired them to develop a whole network behind it.
- Why social change is deeply needed.
- How we can travel more social and what we need to achieve this.
Socialbnb – everything started with a school in Cambodia
Have you ever decided to spend one and a half hours in one of the auto rickshaws? A Tuk-Tuk is a good option to get around in Southeast-Asian cities. When Mr Thy picked me up I didn’t know what I got myself into. It was dusty, bumpy and – scenic. The moment I saw the rice fields and the small children running around, waving at me, I knew it was worth the ride. A Homestay in the middle of nowhere.
Thinking back to my time in Cambodia I have so smile. It’s a different way of travel once you get the opportunity to connect with local people.
In the interview with Socialbnb you will learn more about their project and what they do to enable a different way of travel.
