Learning & Fun




I came two days before the appointed day at Valparaiso boat and they still received me. They treated me very well. We worked hard but it was regarded with a lot of good food, coffees, and amazing people to talk with always.

I volunteered with the boat reparations but also with kitchen hand in a workshop they organized. Met a lot of cool people from all over Europe that came for the workshop.

The team of Valparaiso always asked us if we were tired... If you were tired you could rest anytime.

Thank you so much for the opportunity anq everything Valparaiso and Catfarm community! Love you all




Amazing vibes! I have learned a lot during this adventure :) Take care and see you very soon guys, in Amsterdam or at the catfarm ;)




The host call me to cancel the stay just a few hours before my fligth to Amsterdam when everything was "ready" i even attach my fligth details to him days before... For more than i tried to understand i cant believe he didnt even offer to recibe me to stay the first nigth that i arrive to Amsterdam it was late in the night i had to find a hostel and pay a lot of money to pass the nigth then i was left without any solution i just stay in Amsterdam on nigth and have to pay more travel expenses while i found another program (in belgium). Complety his fault noting to do with Worldpackers.




Awesome place, lovely crew! A little desorganized but really nice experience!!! Ill miss It for sure!!




Awesome experience with amazing people! I learned a lot. Unfortunately I had to go back to Brazil earlier than I planned, But for me the experience volunteering was only the beginning of a journey ;)
