WWOOF / Workaway questions answered

25


25 per package - Virtual OK

As a WWOOF and Workaway host, I can answer your questions and give you tips to help make your experience more successful. Whether you are wanting to travel or host, I can read over your profile and offer suggestions. I can also let you know some of the common pitfalls you want to avoid and help you formulate questions to ask before you arrive (or host.) Unfortunately, there are a lot of horror stories on both sides - many of which could have been avoided with better communication up front. But there are also a LOT of wonderful experiences out there!!! We've had our share of both and I'd love to help you improve your chances of being one of the great ones. For 25 simbi, you can ask as many questions as you like. I'll keep emailing back and forth with you until you run out of questions.

Training & Qualifications


I have hosted both WOOFers and Workawayers for about 2 years. We've had workers we would have gladly adopted and kept forever. We've had workers we had to kick out after 3 days. It has been a HUGE learning experience and I'd love to help others make the most of their opportunity.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

I LOVE to travel but it is so expensive from Hawaii. If anyone has vouchers they won't be using (and that can be transferred) I'd love to trade. Just let me know what you think is reasonable. I'...

About Charissa Pacheco

I've lived in Hawaii for over 7 years now and absolutely love it! I'm a nanny and photographer who also makes jewelry (mostly sterling silver and glass) and loves to do crafts. I have extensive expe...rience with pet sitting and house sitting, as well. If you are visiting Hawaii, I'd love to give you inside tips and help you plan your trip, especially if you are trying to do it on a budget. Being frugal in paradise is my specialty! My newest adventure is that I've found a way to get scuba certified and go diving for FREE! WooHoo! I'm doing a work exchange program with a dive shop here on Oahu. I'm a "tank monkey" for one shift a week in exchange for my lessons and equipment. After a pretty horrendous health ordeal, it is exciting to be getting my life back and being active again. I'm into the "crunchy" lifestyle and prefer to make as much as possible myself. I've been brewing kombucha for 10 years now. I also make sourdough and yogurt. If there is a way to DIY something, I've probably tried it (or want to try it!)show more
