About Rainbow Bear
Hi, my name is ‘Rainbow’. I am an inquisitive and friendly little bear who has a great interest in travel, different cultures and travel safety. I would love to go on a great adventure with you and record your experiences on my camera, capturing daily life in your host country, showcasing the great volunteer placement you are doing and relaying hints, tips and travel safety advice to young travellers around the world.
I am interested in your views on….
Top travel tips – What information have you discovered in your pre-trip research? What tips have you learnt along the way and is there anything you wish you had known before you travelled to your destination?
Local cultures – How much of a culture shock have you had, if any, since arriving? What customs and traditions have you noticed? Is there any cultural advice you feel travellers should be aware of before visiting your destination?
Safety advice – What should young travellers be aware of before visiting? Are there any unusual laws or customs people need to know? Are there any areas travellers should avoid? Have you learnt of any local scams which travellers should watch out for? Are there any other hints, tips and information you may consider relevant?

Preparation for your travelling adventure.
Learn as much as you can about the places you are visiting and plan your routes, build some flexibility in to your schedule in case you find extra things to do on your travels.
Prepare as much as you can before you travel so you don’t have to worry about anything other than enjoying where you are and been aware of your surroundings.
