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.

We feel lucky that we have a good life." This month's Workaway "Host of the Month", a beautiful organic farm from the Jordan Valley reminds us to slow down and enjoy the view.

Food is such a huge part of travel. It doesn’t only teach us about the country and its culture, but also its people and traditions. Recently we’ve met the foodie workwawayer Malou, who previously worked as the Deputy Editor for Jamie Oliver HQ in London for nearly 5 years. And it only seems to us that there’s no better timing to get serious about your food travel!

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.

Family owned for almost 600 years, the farm was traditional up to the 70s. Neglected after a community finished around 2000, it now has love provided by Devi & Ezra the youngest generation of their family : With the volunteers we found a sustainable way to keep our project going.

The fact that we ourselves as real chocolate addicts have sunk our teeth into the discovery of every step in the chocolate process, is obvious.

I am staying at the home of a lovely couple who, in exchange for a helping hand around the ranch, provide me with room and board. In all honesty they are providing me with so much more than that – great conversation, years of wisdom, an amazing experience, a very comfortable bed and room, and the most delicious and nutritious food.
