orangeboy has indicated that this thread is about Netherlands

G'day all,

Can someone please recommend me a site or organisation which specializes is working holidays? I already heard something about WWOOF, which suppose to be very good?
I especially looking for work on farms; going for the feeling of 'being part of the family', not just a one-shot work for one day.

Would really appreciate if someone could help me!

Hi there,

WWOOF is a nice way to meet people living the local way of life. You can buy de wwoof book with all the contact information. Also there is a FFINZ (I am not pretty sure of the name)book -around NZ$25- that is a sort of membership that allows you to work in some farms in exchange of free boarding -same than WWOOF-.

Most of the people I met had great experiences while wwoofing. But, also I met some of them that weren't so lucky. Fellow travellers' advices are the best source of information.

Any other doubt do not hesitate to email me.

Have fun.
