We’ve heard it all before – ‘I quit my job to travel the world’, but what is it really like when you are actually doing it?

Workawayer Anna & Andrea's agreement with their host was to create a website and a marketing campaign for their Ecotourism project in exchange for a place to sleep, food, and the possibility to try out the attractions they organise. They started trekking in the jungle then across the waterfalls and bamboo rafting; then the time came for camping at the mountain top, for a sunrise bath in the hot spring and, best of all, for a trip to Ratchaprapha dam, one of the most beautiful places in the world...

You all know by now how Workaway works and the benefits of volunteering compared to aimless travel, so we won’t go on about that again, but sometimes it’s just nice to highlight some of the 21,000+ hosts we now have online – especially the ones that are really making a difference to our planet and are giving back to the local communities.

What I couldn’t know then was that my first Workaway solo trip would teach me important lessons that I still rely on several years, and many Workaways later. Whether you’re considering your first solo trip with Workaway or your thirtieth, I hope you’ll find them valuable too.
