Workaway – The Perfect Tool for Travellers

After our Sydney plans fell through, we found ourselves desperately scrambling to figure out where to go and what to do. We hadn’t been able to get our tax number without an Australian address, so we weren’t able to look for paid work. Many of the jobs that were posted for travellers involved skills like…

An Introduction to Overseas Housesitting

Near the start of our trip we had decided that if we were going to spend our first Christmas away from home in Australia, we were going to make it as different from our usual Christmas as possible. That meant that we wanted a hot Christmas, near the ocean, and we did not want to…

It is no secret that I love animals. One of the main things I look for when searching workaway for hosts is whether they have animals or not. Snowy River Camps was perfect because we had SO many opportunities to get up close and personal with their furry friends! First up were the dogs, all…
