Author John Marshall joins Big Blend Radio to discuss his book ‘WIDE-OPEN WORLD: How Volunteering Around the Globe Changed One Family’s Lives Forever.' Published by Ballentine Books, WIDE-OPEN WORLD documents he and his family’s 6 month volunteering vacation trip around the world. They spent time at an animal sanctuary in the rainforest of Costa Rica, labored on organic farms in New Zealand, taught English in rural Thailand, fell in love with orphans in India, and worked alongside a Buddhist monk high in the Himalayas. John is also the founder of New Orphanage.
