Remember that when you leave this Earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received, only what you have given, a full heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage. -St. Francis of Assisi

Work Kamping

I would return to most of these jobs (unless noted below).

For me, workamping is a "paid vacation".

I get to really see an area in the few months that I am there, I work a little and earn money to pay travel expenses.

Workamping and volunteering are a great way to meet like-minded people, I have many new friends that were co-workers.

I decide on an area I want to visit, or to be near family, and then I start to apply for jobs, jobs can be found @ Workamper News, CoolWorks or through Craigslist - search for seasonal or temporary jobs.
