Volunteer Year Abroad
Jodi Gustafson of Whitehorse took a year off from her university studies to volunteer in various countries around the world. She went looking for something more that what she could learn from books and definitely found it! Now set on a career path she is passionate about, she may never have discovered it had she not taken a gap year. You can find her complete story in the August/September issue of Our Canada under Canadians Abroad, but in the meantime, take a look at these gorgeous photos Jodi sent in.

On her adventures, Jodi took time to explore her spiritual side. Here are some peace flags at the Anahata Ashram in Takaka, New Zealand.
