Our GFP comes to a close, lessons learnt are many, friends made are for a life time, the travel bug has been feed and the opportunities are plenty. Hopefully over the past few weeks I have been able to share some of the amazing experiences I have been privileged to be present at and I look forward to the challenge of completing the scholarship program in the next 6 months.
