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.
I absolutely loved travelling in hostels and would recommend it to anyone. It’s a great place to meet people, to hear incredible stories, and lets be frank… meet some of the weirdest people you’ve ever met in your life… However there is a dark side… badly behaved guests!
