5) Did you do anything during your free time that you can recommend to following participants?

Eating Sushi in Johannesburg. No, seriously: I had very few free days in between the courses. On those days I spent some time with myself, took the shooting exam, and met a few friends.

6) Which tips would you give to other participants who would like to do this project?

Try to start your project with an empty mind.

In Johannesburg, I always took Uber. I didn’t have any negative experiences with it.

7) Can you guess how many additional expenses you had?

I spent around 50 Euro for drinks per week during the courses.

8) Here is some space for further suggestions or stories:

I can only answer the question whether I would recommend booking a project with Natucate with yes. To be fair I have to admit that I have (almost) no comparison. But if I take my own standards and ask myself how you would prepare and support someone before, during, and after their project, it would be exactly the way you did it.

Did I ever have doubts that something won’t work out? No

Did I feel supported and understood? Yes

Would I do it again just the same? Yes

Thank you for this experience!
