Help Exchange

Alison found this site the other day that will hopefully prove useful in providing us with some things to do and a place to stay for our brief leg in New Zealand. It seems very similar to Australia’s now global WWOOF program, just a little more informal. The Willing Workers On Organic Farms is our principal means of survival while in Australia. The program allows hosts to take in temporary unpaid travelers who for 4-6 hours a day in exchange for three meals a day and a place to sleep.

In the final stages now, STA thankfully got back to us and corrected a recently discovered error in our itinerary that would have dramatically abbreviated out time in Tasmania. It’s getting a little nerve-wracking, for me anyhow.
