FIRST DAYS IN LOMBOK
Day 1 – arrival to Lombok (by boat or by a plane). Pick up from the airport and transfer to Kuta. Settling down and meeting with our coordinator. Rest.
Day 2 – Introduction meeting with your coordinator who will show you the area and hand over the scooter. The option of extending the first few rest days is available if requested.
Day 3 – Meeting with student and settling down into your teaching schedule. Our coordinator will take you to the village where you meet the head teacher. Together you will prepare a teaching plan for the duration of your stay
Please bear in mind that getting around the island without a scooter is not an option. If you are not familiar with driving a scooter it is suggested to practise before arrival to Lombok.
It is also recommended to come to Lombok with a friend, if you are not familiar with volunteering abroad. In a country with largely different culture you will appreciate a company.
