HelpX, or Help Exchange, is a website connecting hosts and travelers. Hosts provide accommodation, and most of the time food, to travelers in exchange for a few hours of work per day. It is an excellent way to do interesting work, meet locals, travel slowly, and save money!

A good way to help the community while traveling is to give some much-needed dogs at the rescue center, Care for Dogs, 20 minutes outside of Chiang Mai, Thailand.
We spent some time with a Thai family on their organic farm in Northern Thailand. From gardening to cooking, fetching grass to fishing, we learned and experienced a whole lot.
