Im begining to plan a RTW trip and am interested in working/volunteering along the way. Id like to do this both for some extra cash while im on the road and as an opportunity to get to know locals and the culture better. Im still deciding on destinations but am interested in SE Asia, Africa, and S. America.
Ive heard of people working for their hostel and this sounds like a good possibility but Id love to hear other ways people have got jobs along the way. How hard is it to get work with out a work visa? And what kind of jobs are available? (I have a BA in psychology if this helps but i certinly dont need a job in this field)
What about teaching english abroad? I know of a variety of programs based out of the US, but they require training...how hard is it to get a job doing this while abroad and with out the training?
Any reccomendations on organizations doing volunteer work? Generally what do these organizations provide to volunteers...room and board perhaps?
I know that it may be hard to answer since i dont have my destinations worked out yet, but general advice or personal experiences would be greatly appreciated.
