Hi there,

I've been thinking for a while about signing up for voluntary work abroad through websites such as Travellers Worldwide as a way of seeing new places, experiencing new things and avoiding the clich├ęd touristy things.

Does anybody have any positive/negative experiences or advice they could give me?

Just spent 6 months volunteering in Ethiopia as a nurse educator.

As long as you don't mind fleas, bad roads, crazy driving, typical African maladies(although Addis is malaria free) you may find it a place that grabs your heart and won't let go.
