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.

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
