Christelle was not only a volunteer, but she also frequently managed many tasks. We are really appreciative of her diligence and neatness. She completed her tasks very quickly and graciously took the additional work we frequently assigned to her. We were impressed by her warmth and coordination, and we knew she could handle things. Dear Christelle, It was a pleasure working with you. We need employees with your skills, and it's likely that we'll officially welcome you to our property for the upcoming season.

Wow.. another wonderful experience with Worldpackers. This experience was the first that was actually "serious", with a contract, fixed hours (11-3pm), a schedule, and responsibilities. I love having different types of experiences and this one was definitely one of the most memorable. I was in a dorm of 9 people total (mixed guests and volunteers) but it was super comfy and I got the rest I needed. The team was great, the long term guests are amazing, and all the travellers I met were wonderful. I actually might even "move" to Slovenia after this experience, it was that magical! Thank you!

A review , about the wonderful Christelle . she seems to love the volunteering and travel. Christelle is full of energy and chipper maybe its the Yoga . can teach others as well as work alone. has an artists view of the world and can transfer this to walls and people. I think she enjoyed SnowBunnys and we would be happy to see Christelle again. PS looks good in yoga pants, Just like me :)

That special time where you have to write a review.. that you know every single future volunteer will read :) First of all i'd like to thank Dave for the wonderful 2 weeks I spent in Kitzbuhel. Dave is one of those people that you will probably never forget (or remember) throughout your life. This whole experience can be very insightful and you can learn A LOT.... if you want to. If you're more the type to want fixed hours and need to be told exactly what to do - this is not for you. Be adaptable, flexible, have a sense of humour, be up for adventure, avoid meat, and... bring a towel ;)

Trece Cielos... San Cris.. Chiapas.. What more to say about this experience. I can only recommend spending some time over there, it's magical. The "work" is really laid back, easy, simple; the people at the hostel are super nice and chill, and Fernando is probably the best boss you could ask for! San Cris is a wonderful place to visit and Trece Cielos really has awesome vibes. Thank you for everything and i'll definitely be back :)

Your complete travel guide to visit Paris on a budget

27 y/o Singaporean/French female traveler. I started backpacking with Worldpackers in August 2020: I said goodbye to my Parisian life and bought a one-way ticket to Mexico. Since then, i've spent 7 months there, backpacked all through Central America up to Panama, lived in Manchester (UK) for a few months and now i'm back on the road again doing all remaining countries in Europe that I haven't been to before (20 left), before I head to South America.
