My next destination:Cambodia View all
I've done Workaways all over the world (Panama, Portugal, Spain, Indonesia, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, etc.) and have absolutely LOVED my experiences. The projects have included teaching English, bartending/hospitality, permaculture, basic building/maintenance, etc. I've had so many amazing opportunities to apply my skills and gain new ones.
Now, I am back to Workaway looking for opportunities such as house-sitting and pet-sitting, as I work part-time online and I think it would be a great arrangement for all of us. I absolutely LOVE animals and even foster dogs when I am home. I'd love to give you a hand!
