Gina Wijers in the launch of her book, Swimming in Uncharted Waters, published in English, having been originally available in Dutch from 2009. Gina spent a couple of years in Cambodia as a volunteer with VSO and the book is a collection of her personal thoughts and views, which were originally intended as blog posts for her family. Her observations show the humorous side of life in Cambodia for a newbie, coupled with the frustrations and self-doubts, as she describes everyday situations at home, with friends and in the workplace. I enjoyed the book.
