Useful websites for finding work abroad

I’ve never had an immense stash of savings. Most of the travels I did at the beginning of my journey were due to me working in foreign countries. Even when I did, I was always looking for ways to continue my career and travel at the same time. So if you are broke, but willing, or just want to keep your CV full while wandering – here’s a list of websites or ways to find work abroad or remote work.

As always with my list style posts, I will always update if I discover new resources. So be sure to check back when the idea floats back into your head about working abroad. Also, tenderly remember this personal message from me to you at that time: “DO IT!” and #KeepWading, of course.

I will add further descriptions at a later date.

Useful websites for booking local experiences

Local people, food places and events are fundamental to our learning. But getting straight to the heart of a new places’ culture isn’t always as easy as I’m sure we’d all like. And although finding the local spots is more organic with longer trips, this list of websites is designed for when time isn’t on your side. If you feel your company is missing from this list, simply drop your useful travel friend an email here.

Useful websites for booking hostels

Not all hostels are made equal. Whether you are a converted hostel lover or a first-timer, there’s much to learn about the world of hostels. Below I have published a curated list of websites I know for booking hostels in the UK, Europe and worldwide. The general websites are pretty comprehensive, but the second list offers reduced collections and curated types of hostels if you simply can’t choose! Hope you find the list useful, as ever. If you feel your company is missing from this list, simply drop your useful travel friend an email here.
