Travelling is all about reinventing and change of routine and lifestyle, so yes, travelling is going to be a bit more challenging when you have certain dietary restrictions, food allergies OR when you are simply a picky eater, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t or shouldn’t visit countries where people have eating habits vastly different from yours. In fact what you may lose in choice you could gain in quality of experience.

Many people would be put off by the idea of getting into a total random stranger’s car in a foreign country, asking for a free lift.. But as told by our Workaway ambassador Charlotte, hitchhiking is not only one of the best ways to get around in Southeast Asia…it also can be an ideal way to meet new people!

And some of them are even right here on Workaway ready and waiting for people like YOU to stay in. Here are 8 that have caught our eye recently..

I knew my purpose in life from a very young age. Or so I thought. Three years into my field and mid-way through my twenties, I realized I had lost my original sense of purpose, and myself in the meantime. I knew I had to make a change..and these are some of the lessons I learned about re-discovering my purpose after a year of volunteering with Workaway.

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.

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? When you stop earning a guaranteed salary and start travelling without a wage? We decided to ask someone that knows all too well on how to really live off pennies, and the rewards that come with doing Workaway exchange.

Taken under subtle lighting at dusk, the photo has undoubtedly succeeded in capturing Yanzhou’s stunning beauty at its best. We love the picture for being so much more than merely a postcard of the oriental landscape.
