In 2015, I applied as a volunteer through Workaway with my girlfriend. The job would involve working for an American family on a hill overlooking the city of Cannes. Workaway involves trading 5 hours of work, doing a variety of tasks, for lodging and board – a perfect system for graduates travelling on a budget.
The opportunity to spend time at a spectacular villa, complete with a private pool, seemed to good to be true. But we got the job! Read about my experience in the beautiful towns and cities in the South of France.
Graduate travel on a budget is definitely possible!
