I prefer to hitchhike or cycle so it's always better to have travel companions - both are more fun with other people !

Europe

Helper Description:
I'm 24 and just out of university! I'm especially interested in getting involved in forestry and conservation, but I'd love to try all kinds of work and am always keen to learn new things. I really enjoy being outdoors all day, regardless of the work & weather.

I'm in decent shape for physical work and don't smoke. Will eat just about anything, though tend towards an organic and low-meat diet when cooking for myself.

My favourite way to travel is by bicycle, so there's a good chance I will turn up at your place on my bike!
