HelpStay

A new contact platform between host and helpers. They hold a database of Farms, House Holders, Art Retreat Centres, Eco- villages, Backpacker Hostels, Surf Lodges, Vineyards, Ranches, Schools, Monasteries and Kibbutzim, all who are looking for a few hours of honest help and offering accommodation and food in exchange.

Man in seat 61
www.seat61.com

Amazing website that has documented rail, bus and ferry travel all over he world. As we’re trying to avoid flying where at all possible-this is our first reference point for every journey that we make. Relatively up-to-date information on schedules and prices, as well as great reviews of the travel experience…A truly brilliant website!
