Hey. I graduate from high school this year and I'm trying to plan a gap year (or so) in Europe or possibly South America. I'm looking into organic farming, there's this organization called WWOOF that has a network of organic farms all over Europe. Or so I hear. I don't have much information about it, but it sounds awesome. Yeah, I looked at the websites and stuff, I'm trying to figure something out, but I don't really know what I'm doing. Does anyone have any experience in an organization like this and could give me any tips?|
I want to look into other programs too, but I don't have much money to spend. I'm hoping to find something that can pay. I know English, Spanish, German and French, but I want to study other languages so I'm looking for opportunities anywhere in Europe or South/Central America.
Do you know any other programs like WWOOF?
Are you familiar with WWOOF and can you tell me what exactly I have to do to plan a trip for next year?
Also, does anyone have any general advice for travel or studying foreign languages (the main focus of my trip)?
Also interested in any gap year horror stories, got robbed, got lost, gypsies, mafia, stuff like that.
