GoGozo has a simple philosophy. We believe in giving young people the extraordinary chance to experience Malta, Sicily, Tunisia, Gozo and surrounding area, and to learn about the art of photography with a group of interested peers.
GoGozo and its trip leaders put a distinct emphasis on fun, adventure and awareness building. With such exciting activities as riding camels in Tunisia, visiting the Star Wars filming site, or the nightly Balzan street festivals, there is much to experience.
Photographic instruction, including darkroom developing and computer manipulation, is an ongoing backdrop to our adventures. Students are encouraged to carry their cameras at all times and to experiment with new cameras including rudimentary pinholes, and single-use cameras.
|TESTIMONIAL FROM A PAST PARTICIPANT
I was talking to someone earlier today about life in general and how
to stay not-crazy, and...I kinda talked a lot about you, actually. And I
realized as I thought about it that I can't think of anyone aside from
you or my parents who has taught me more about 'the world' in general. I
know you're the type to sort of want to shrug this off and make light of
it in a sort of nonchalant way, but I am deadly serious here.
I guess I have spent quite a bit of time the last few months
thinking about places I've been and things I've done and people I've
met, and I am more and more glad to have shared in your little stockpile
of human adventure. I am sure I have said as much several times, and
less eloquently (not that this is in any sense eloquent) but I felt like
I ought to put down in writing how my much temporally-limited
experiences with you have meant.
When I talk to people who have barely-or never-traveled, I always
send them the photos I have taken in my time in Malta...and they're
always astounded. It always reminds me how wonderful my time overseas
has been when they say these things, and I wish I could carry a rucksack
full of polaroids for all of them.
This isn't going anywhere, so I won't force it...I guess it's mostly
my restless way of saying thanks. I wanted you to know I gained a much
stronger and more vital appreciation for...
I guess for life.
