Career skills I learned during my Workaways that changed my life!

We chat with Milton who's been curious about the world since a young age. He eventually packed up his bags, quit his job and started travelling the world! Through Workaway he picked up quite a few new skills, including some that got him his current job in Italy. We're excited to see what other journey's he'll be taking!

Dance and kitesurf with locals at one of the most beautiful beaches in Ecuador

This month, we talk with Juan who helps run a guest house in Ecuador on a remote beach in Santa Marianita. Drawing on his experience hosting over 100 Workaway volunteers (!), he shared valuable wisdom and his compassion for helping others. We’re already imagining the beautiful breeze coming off the waves and know you’ll be wanting to book a flight ASAP!

Live and teach among the indigenous Achuar deep inside the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest

This month, we talk to Samira and Alan with this school project in a Ecuadorian Amazon village. Dedicated to helping protect indigenous culture in the heart of the Amazon, they need volunteers like you and me to help teach English in their remote village. We’re inspired by their project and know you will be too!
