Work and Travel
You want to see as much as possible from a country but don’t have the financial means for “regular traveling”? Another cost-effective alternative is Work and Travel where you earn your travel money on the way. By traveling around and taking on occasional jobs you get the opportunity to get deep insights in a country and its culture but you simultaneously remain independent and flexible.
Even though Wwoofing and Work and Travel are quite good and cheaper alternatives to a regular journey, there are still a few expenses that you should consider. Apart from possible programme or membership fees, you should expect costs for flights, possibly needed visa, insurances, vaccinations, and special documents (e.g. international driver’s license). Some countries also require evidence of additional financial savings. And don’t forget the expenses that might occur on site, especially when doing volunteer work and Wwoofing.
No matter what option you choose – we hope that your break provides you with rest and relaxation and simultaneously brings you new, exciting experiences. NATUCATE-founder Daniel sums it up very well: “In our stressful daily work our life often loses itself in routine. To get out of this familiar routine and to leave the comfort zone requires some effort – but it is definitely worth it. Because the moment in which you break new ground and meet challenges or fears is also the moment in which you feel alive.”
