Logos Hope – charitable ship / bookstore

I think this is pretty interesting. An article about the Logos Hope, a ship that’s a floating bookstore with over half a million books. Their mission seems to be to bring affordable books to various places in Southeast Asia. There confirmed ports of call for the near future are:

Kuching, Malaysia October 27th, 2011 – November 15th, 2011

Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia November 17th, 2011 – December 13th, 2011

Singapore, Singapore December 16th, 2011 – December 28th, 2011

Cebu, Philippines January 13th, 2012 – February 14th, 2012

Manila, Philippines February 16th, 2012 – March 14th, 2012

If you want to travel and experience culture shock, you might consider volunteering to work on the Logos Hope. The first article I linked to mentions a few volunteers’ stories and this article offers a few more. If you can afford not to get paid for a while, it sure does sound like a meaningful travel adventure.
