Winning the award and embarking on your adventure is just the beginning. There is a vibrant community of past winners that comes together often to share experience and ideas.

Once you have won the award you can join this network and access its wealth of experience, including insider information on destinations around the world, general travellers’ tips and even mentoring for graduates entering the work place.

The community comes together in the summer and again at Christmas for a party in London to meet the new travellers and catch up with each other. There are gatherings, at other times of the year, in Oxford, Cambridge and Edinburgh.

Finally, the ISA Charity is always open to ideas from members of the community for new projects and challenges that they could support.

Going away and seeing such amazing things has made me realise that I can’t possibly spend my life in one country. I think it has also made me a much more patient person, or at least I hope so. ‘Pole Pole’ as they say in Swahili or even ‘Mora Mora’ from Madagascar. There are both sayings that mean ‘slowly slowly’ a concept that is applied to life as a whole in Africa and enables one to appreciate other people’s values and ways of life.
