We stayed with Margot for a week helping her with renovating an outdoor bathroom in the Inner West of Sydney. During time off, we discussed politics, the environment, and current events.

Guide to HelpX: Volunteering & Free Accommodation

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!

Volunteering on an Eco-Resort & Organic Farm in Thailand

Volunteering in exchange for accommodation is an excellent way to have a meaningful experience while keeping travel costs low. Using Helpx.net, we tried seeking volunteer opportunities all around Southeast Asia, but only had luck in Thailand. For a little over a week, we helped on an organic farm and stayed for free at Faasai Resort & Spa, a peaceful eco-resort located a few hundred meters away from Kung Wiman Beach in Chanthaburi, Thailand.
