“You will never see the world the same ... and to have done it through educational purposes makes it far better than if I went over as an individual tourist.” (Student, 2017 Bali fieldwork)

“I think the trip forced me to critically engage with my position in the world as a privileged person. I found myself thinking beyond the basics and assessing ways I can interact with others or just travel in an approach that was more beneficial to the people of that destination country than myself as the tourist/voyeur.” (Student, 2017 Bali fieldwork)
