After 52 years of employment and family life Daniel decided to sell his house, his car and all his possessions and fulfill his dream of travelling the world after retirement. Nowadays his sole possessions are in his backpack, but even after two years on the road Workawaying he has never looked back.

After ten months workawaying Aude is on a non-stop mission to leave a trail of inspirational murals behind her as she travels around the globe on a one way ticket. Some of her friends call her “an artwork machine“, because when she starts painting she is in the zone and there is no stopping her…!

Since we dare to bet that you have daydreamed about leaving your day-to-day life behind and driving off into the sunset at least once, we couldn’t wait to share Workawayers Norbert and Dóra‘s story with you. This young, adventurous architect-journalist pairing from Hungary didn’t just hit the road, they decided to do so in a mobile home that they built themselves! We caught up with the couple for a peek into their van life.

We recently came across the story of workawayers Anna and Marcin, a Polish couple who are pretty much living the dream. They quit their jobs for a life of slow travel, cycled from their home country all the way to Greece – AND brought their dog along on their adventures! We just need to find out more about their awesome journey.

When we were planning our honeymoon, we thought we can make the best of our round-the-world trip by experiencing the rural lifestyle as a farmer via workaway, as a test to make sure we weren’t just romanticizing the idea of living on a farm (especially because we were both working office jobs in New York City)! We were also hoping that the new skill set we would gain can really carry us through our big retirement plan of living on a ranch or a farm.

Well, we felt it’s not always the things in life that you do that you sometimes regret, it’s the things that you don’t do. If there’s something that you really want to do, just take a chance! You can always go home if it doesn’t work out. It was a bit scary thinking about it and we talked about travelling for about a year before we realised that the only thing stopping us, was us.

In the beginning I was very insecure and almost anxious but soon I simply fell in love with this miraculous, mesmerizing, beautiful country. I thought I might feel limited, as I just cannot wear whatever I want like at home or I cannot move freely because of being a girl, especially as a solo female traveller, but this turned out to be just wrong...

As a solo female traveller and workawayer, you’re entirely thrown out of your comfort zone, and are a little awkward and vulnerable. Everything's all on you and you alone to figure out; but that’s what stretches you and makes you grow.

Once you start browsing the host list on workaway.info you’ll never want to stop. The thing that attracted me the most is the ability to live with local families and learn about their daily lives, how they eat, sleep and cook. I had no idea that this could be possible
