Testimonial : Niek, participant du TET Tour 2011 “I have had an amazing and beautiful time and the motor trip has been so incredible!“ “The beautiful sceneries, the fact that it has been ten days intense living with the group and sharing such unique experiences has been mind blowing for me. Even more and with big respect for the projects we have visited and the big group of people connected to the projects that joined us, and the children.“ “It has been such an unforgettable journey which showed Vietnam in a way you’d never see on any other trip and at least for me it changed perspective on live. Thanx all for making the trip the way it was!” Niek, participant du TET Tour 2011
