Workaway works on the simple premise; “will work for food and shelter”… The twist is this work is not zzzz yawn worthy. You can work doing whatever! For example, I have used workaway to work on a llama farm in Yorkshire, a yoga retreat in Andalucia, teach children in the barrios of Nicaragua and work as a bartender/tour guide in a hostel in Guatemala. The possibilities are literally endless.
Solo travel was something for me that started as a necessity, but has changed my life forever.
Previous to this point I had never actually wanted to backpack alone, it always seemed super lonely, and to be honest a bit sad.
However, I reached the point where I realized I could spend my life waiting for someone to join me or I could brave it alone and actually achieve my goals.
