Travel Help Being a Travel Helper

Silvia Nocella is a Travel Helper for Uruguay. She explained exactly why she likes the concept so much:
"There must be plenty of different reasons for becoming a Travel Helper, but basically I think the main issue is participating in the created value of fostering connections between individuals who share a common passion: TRAVELLING."
"You are expected to give some of your time, sharing some of your knowledge, trying to make other people's trips easier and more enjoyable by providing those details that can make the difference and that you still can't find over the internet. You never know what kind of questions to expect, some of them will be easy to answer and some of them you won't have a clue about."
"I would say that the biggest benefit is the interaction with other people, getting to know new people, some as different from you as they can be, in age, in culture, in background. Sometimes, you get to meet these people (I love it!) and you are able to build relationships that will last over time.
You ask me what I find so great about being a Travel Helper? The feeling of getting back much more than you are giving! So, go ahead, join us and start sharing the experience!"
