Volunteer & Exchange
Another way to travel and discover amazing places on this planet is: to trade and volunteer in different ways. The possibility of traveling in a foreign country with the stability of a place to stay, a meal and sometimes also a small payment is just cool. Not only for digital nomads- for people who enjoy living and working in the countryside or helping on farms. In the last couple of years, Wwoofing ( World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) has become more & more popular and it’s a really interesting way to travel.
HELP X: It’s an online listing of host organic farms, non-organic farms, farmstays, homestays, ranches, lodges, B&Bs, backpacker hostels and even sailing boats, who invite volunteer helpers to stay with them short-term in exchange for food and accommodation.
WWOOF: You live with your host and are expected to join in and cooperate with the day-to-day activities. In most countries, the exchange is based on 4-6 hours a dayhelp-fair exchange for a full day’s food and accommodation.
WORK AWAY: Just a few hours of honest help per day, in exchange for food and accommodation, and an opportunity to learn about the local lifestyle and community, with friendly hosts in varying situations and surroundings.
