Volunteer.

e talked a lot about volunteering on the road in the early days of our travel plans. Soon after we left on our first long term trip, we decided to WWOOF on a Tuscan vineyard, which, as you may imagine, was all we needed to fuel our volunteering spirit. The following year we traveled to Serbia to help usher in its new WWOOF Program, and then last summer we traveled to Guatemala (one of our favorite places on earth) on a volunteer trip with the incredible folks at Cooperative For Education.

Although I would say the romantic notion of picking grapes in Tuscany is decidedly over, I know that we would do it again and I wish I could spend more time and move to another vineyard every couple of weeks to learn a different aspect of the wine making process.

    Great post! We planned to do some WWOOFing in Japan this trip but it just didn’t happen this time. It is still on the cards for our family and thanks to blogs like yours we will be well informed.

    Saw your travel blogging tip on hostelbookers and visited your site for inspiration.
