Dear fellow Workaway International participants
By now most of you have probably finalized your northern jobs.
Passover and Easter will be as busy as Christmas and Thanksgiving, so look after yourself so that you can give that last bit of energy and dedication. Communicate with your current club and your northern club and see if you can take a small break in-between. Maybe do a road trip to your northern club, and explore a few of the beautiful towns in the USA. Enjoy your northern placement and save as much as you can so that when you come back, you can enjoy Florida even more.
To those who were not lucky this time, remember that going home does not mean the end of the world. The most important thing is that you finish strong. It is not how you start a race but how you finish it.
If you have decided to head home, share your experience with your family and friends. Stay in contact with Workaway International and recommend the experience to as many people as you can. We would love to invite you to the upcoming presentations so that you can meet potential participants, tell them about your experience and vouch for your country club.
My second season was my favourite as I had my best friend with me on the programme. We recommended our country club to many of the potential participants at the presentation and in turn made some amazing friends. Some of them even moved into the same apartment as us!
Good luck over the upcoming summer season and all of the best with your future endeavors.
