Episode 1-8: Working Away
In this episode, I will talk about my experiences related to working while traveling or working away.
Working while traveling is a style of travel that has many fans. Voluntary work in travel to cover travel costs does not mean a permanent job, and people only do these volunteer jobs because of their interest in experiencing different jobs or working in a different environment in a city or another country.
A Part of this Podcast:
Greetings to you travel lovers, I am Benyamin Rezaei. In this podcast, I want to talk to you about working away.
Welcome to the eighth episode of Benyamin Marco’s podcast series. In this podcast series, I will talk to you about my travel experiences, my life, the challenges, the adventures I had along the way, and in this episode, I have chosen a different topic called Work Away, which I am sure is an interesting topic. Now let’s see what the work is on the trip. In the year 1988, a group from a School in Austria wanted to travel, but they needed to generate income. Thinking of going in their way, well, there were a lot of fields and orchards like that at that time. Wherever they go, they need water, food and drink, and they decided that wherever they see a farm or a guest house or something like that, they will go and tell the owner of the farm that they will work for them in return. After that time passed and many challenges were seen in this way and until now, I am recording this episode and I am going to tell you more about the workaway.com websites, what is the work package, what is “Helpx”, what is hosting, and what is Coach Surfing. I really like this part of the podcast. We have some websites in the world for those who are traveling around the world. It helps them to travel and earn some money, as the name suggests. In traveling, one of the most famous websites that provide services in this way is definitely WorkAway.com. You can Google for WorkAway.com. There are many other websites, but this WorkAway.com is one of the most famous ones. Now what do they do? When you go, you become a member here in the region you want to go to. For example, I am an Iranian and I want to travel to Germany. Because we Iranians have a special interest in Germany, I don’t know why we characterize our immigrants as Germany lovers. For example, Freiburg near Munich, what a beautiful city it is. My taste is good, what else should I do? How long do you stay in Freiburg or Nuremberg? I say, for example, I am here for ten days. That website will show you the options of what you can do in that city, and maybe you will get a certain amount of money for it, and maybe you will only get food and a place to sleep.
