We’re having a bit of a travel identity crisis. We’re feeling a little… lost? Kind of, well… lazy. So far, Vietnam has been amazing. We love everything we’ve done here. But we’re beginning to have one of those existential what are we really doing feelings. It’s not homesickness, or road-weariness. We’re not tired of traveling. And we’re definitely not ready to go back to work just yet. But we do miss feeling productive. And challenged. And like we belong somewhere, doing something, with a purpose.
Enter, workaway. A website devoted to people who need help with things around the world, and are willing to offer free room and board to folks who are able to give it. Tending a beach bar in Thailand. Harvesting a vineyard in France. Building an eco-lodge in Nicaragua. Teaching English in Spain. Working a dive shop in Australia. The opportunities are interesting, exciting, and endless. And EXACTLY what we’ve been looking for. The chance to get out of hotels for a bit, make some friends, contribute to a project and feel engaged. Not to mention, save some money. I only wish we’d stumbled upon it sooner!! But I know, all things work out for a reason. And we can’t wait to see what types of new and unexpected experiences it may lead to.
It will be so interesting to see what you decide to do with workaway. I would have given anything for such a resource when I was travelling/wandering.ReplyDelete
