You want to travel around the world. But how can you afford such a trip? A grim spell of working overtime and denying yourself a social life is one route to being able to join a safari in Tanzania, a water sport instructor's course on the Mediterranean or a bungee jump in New Zealand. But what if it were possible to skip this stage and head off towards the horizon sooner than that? Work Your Way Around the World is the trusted guide for the self-funded world traveller, now in its 15th edition and fully updated to explain how you can fund your trip by finding temporary work opportunities abroad - both in advance and on the spot while travelling around the world. Work-for-keep arrangements on a New Zealand farm or Costa Rican eco-lodge will mean that you have to save far less than if you booked a long-haul package holiday to those destinations. Incorporating hundreds of first-hand accounts from people who have actually done the jobs with a mass of hard factual information to offer authoritative advice on how to find work from selling ice cream in Cape town to working as a film extra in Bangkok, Work Your Way Around the World gives information on all the main industries offering temporary work including: Tourism Teaching English Childcare Voluntary work Business Hotels and catering Pubs and Clubs Ski Holiday companies Activity holidays Farming and many more...Work Your Way Around the World also includes useful information on dates and details of harvest from Denmark to New Zealand and contains a clear, country-by-country guide to all the job opportunities to be found around the world. Work as you travel around the world to self-fund your trip of a lifetime. Working abroad is an excellent way to experience a foreign culture from the inside, but job and work opportunities abroad, like jobs at home, must be ferreted out. Work Your Way Around the World will help you do just that.
