Travel Tips

So you wanna work as a Volunteer? This is how to get there: In this Blogpost, I summarised some helpful tips on where to find a job, how to choose the right one and how to get it and which ones you better don´t take. Plus some questions you should ask yourself before you are taking an unpaid job.

Staying in a hostel is different to everything else. It is more intense than sharing a flat, because you are basically sharing not only the shower.

Hotels, private flats or houses via Airbnb or housesitting, camping, guesthouses, apartments and of course – hostels.
