Ep.44 - Volunteering (WorkAway) While You Travel - Our First Experience

Updated: Sep 16, 2020

In this episode, we talk about our very first volunteering (Workaway) experience. We spent three weeks volunteering our time at an Eco Jungle Camp at the northernmost tip of Borneo. If you’re considering volunteering or a Workaway experience, this discussion might help shed some light on what to expect.


We discuss the following aspects:


  • How our opportunity came about and why we considered doing it.

  • Where we volunteered and what our tasks and responsibilities were.

  • Did volunteering turn out as we expected?

  • The good and the bad of our volunteering experience.

  • Is volunteering for you?

  • Would we do it again?
