Thanks for that video, I was looking for something to "picture" how it's like to friends. Totally agree! Reply divya1998 somani says: May 26, 2019 at 4:36 pm Very insightful video. It gives the details from both the perspectives. I have never volunteered but am planning to on my next trip to Portugal. I came across a website named https://hippohelp.com/ which I found easy to use. They have this map-based system to look for hosts. Would like to gather complete information about work exchange and then plan my trip. This video was very helpful. Have you tried this website before, or do you have some more advice for me as a first timer?

It's very nice & down to earth as I suppose is approriate for the topic.I'm tempted to click the thumb down just to make it slightly imperfect to be more realistic ;-P Reply Ciara Moore says: May 26, 2019 at 4:36 pm This was super useful, thanks so much! Looking into doing this myself in the spring, should make for even more interesting vlogging. Its great to see others experiences and opinions on it though, thanks for sharing. Reply elpaco25 says: May 26, 2019 at 4:36 pm Is money needed for this? I understand you are provided room and food in exchange for work, but sometimes you need cash on you for unexpected reasons. Has anyone ever found themselves in a situation were you had to use cash that you had brought with you. Or are there ways to work extra hours in exchange for small amounts of cash or extra benefits.Asking because I am a broke college student. Reply Zakaria Nahmad says: May 26, 2019 at 4:36 pm this is the first time I don't see any dislikes in a video , so i think heaters don't like volunteering hh Reply lydia debus says: May 26, 2019 at 4:36 pm This video is so helpful! thanks so much for your hard work I am planning to go on an adventure like this later this year 🙂 Reply Sarah DXplorer says: May 26, 2019 at 4:36 pm agreed, great tips. The one I definitely agree with is "don't have expectations". I've had the best workaway experiences and my expectations were low so I was never disappointed! Reply Xavi Srr says: May 26, 2019 at 4:36 pm – Thanks for uploading this video. I feel really happy. I'm going to join Workaway.info. My friend and I are thinking in traveling around and work as a volunteers. Thank you guys !! This video has a lot of inspiration :') <3 Reply TheRevelegendEMG says: May 26, 2019 at 4:36 pm Thank you so much for this. It really clears up some of my nerves! I can't wait to set off on my travels now 😀 Reply Courtney Coleman says: May 26, 2019 at 4:36 pm thanks for this video. I just joined Workaway,Helpex and WWOOF UK andcam starting my first position next week. It's a little more complicated because I am bringing my dog along. (I couldn't bear to leave her behind) and also because I'm a bit older than most volunteers, but better late than never! Reply Because We Camp says: May 26, 2019 at 4:36 pm Fantastic video guys! We're just digging in to the world of Workaway (just signed up!) and this is crazy helpful. We've signed up with Workway, but we see that you do Helpx as well? Should we do both to cast a wider net or has one site been more helpful to you? Thanks much! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
