We’re on a mission and we want to do things differently! Building a sharing community of global travellers who genuinely want to see the world whilst contributing and giving back to the places they visit. Alongside our welcoming hosts, ready to receive visitors who are able to help out. With thousands and thousands of users and millions of page views every month we thought it was time to write another update on Workaway where we’ve come from and where we’re going… First of all, a continued big thank you to everyone who has made the success of Workaway possible. As well as our current team, we also want to thank the thousands of members who have used Workaway to connect and spread the message on a global scale. Did you know that we’ve grown completely organically and NEVER actively advertise? Workaway has grown via word of mouth, which only inspires us to keep going, knowing that we are providing a service that is making waves across the global travel community. It always used to amaze us that people would pay thousands of dollars to companies or agents to volunteer or work in a different country. Often these companies would charge to “arrange” a volunteer stay or job whilst taking a huge chunk of the profit for themselves and to pay for their advertising whilst giving a very small percentage to the actual place in need. We feel we have made great strides in disrupting this industry. We know that given the right tools and with the power of the internet people are perfectly capable of arranging their own stay, conducting their own checks and organising their own insurance and transport, not only giving the flexibility they need but also making substantial savings to their travel budget. We believe that you get out of life what you are willing to put into it!

Worldpackers is a community based on collaboration and honest relationships that make travel more accessible to those seeking a profound cultural experience. Through an online platform, we connect travelers - looking to exchange their skills for accommodation - with incredible hosts from all around the world. Worldpackers was born through the life experiences of two friends, Riq Lima and Eric Faria. Riq, is an economist who left his job as an investment banker to travel the world for 4 years with little money, but a creative mind. Eric, a certified accountant, initially travelled to the USA to learn English, but ended up staying for nearly four years. His first two years were spent helping out at USA Hostels in San Diego, as a receptionist, a housekeeper and a tourist guide by exchanging his skills for accommodation. He then helped to found International Travellers House, a hostel chain located in California and whose staff was made up entirely of volunteers. Worldpackers is a platform for travelers and hosts, made by those who live and love travel! Our purpose is to democratize meaningful travel experiences through a collaborative mindset.

Founded in Sweden in 1999, Travelstart is the brainchild of entrepreneur, former DJ and family man Stephan Ekbergh. In true start-up fashion, Sweden’s first online travel agency was initially run from an old coffee roastery in Helsingborg. Nearly two decades, plenty of learning, growth and one African immigration later, Stephan still heads up TravelLab Group (TLG) from sunny South Africa. Now based in Cape Town, Travelstart operates in 8 countries with offices in other core markets including Nigeria, Egypt and Dubai. With the Travelstart Group including SafariNow, NightsBridge, Club Travel and Flightsite, our travel family consists of 170 staff spread across 8 cities, all passionate about making travel simple in Africa and the Middle East.Travelstart is Africa’s leading online travel agency that helps today’s business and leisure travellers search, compare and book the best flight, bus, hotel, car hire, holiday packages and activities all in one place. With a huge focus on affordable travel and simplifying the travel booking experience for our customers, visit the Travelstart website or Flapp, the Travelstart app, to find some of the lowest fares around. Pay quickly and safely online with your preferred payment method and you’re off! Freedom is a wonderful word. Our freedom was given to us by our parents and grandparents. Millions sacrificed their lives, so we could sip skinny lattes at Brandenburger Tor Gate, go shopping on Corzo Venezia in Milan or surf in Jeffreys Bay. We take freedom for granted, like oxygen. But it’s slowly been chipped away. Thousands of invisible battles are fought every day in front of our very eyes. Increased government control, corporate corruption, red tape, social media censorship, surveillance in the name of protection, fake news, price fixing. The list is endless. Travelstart assists and upholds our precious freedom to move, to meet, to be curious, to go to exotic locations and to explore new cultures and be inspired by new people. We help you to meet with distant relatives, to make business across borders, lovers to meet and to keep the world an open place. Freedom to move is precious ­to us and something we find worth fighting for. It’s something we find worth living for. The TravelStart Affiliate program is one of the more desirable programs that you can get into. The products are pretty easy to sell and the commissions are pretty good. Their affiliate program can be promoted through text links display banners. You will promote Hotels, Flights, car rentals and holiday packages from TravelStart. The banners that you run from Travel Start are aesthetically pleasing, so they don’t hamper user experience.

“The key to unlocking complexity, is simplicity itself” This is the lesson that I have learned time and time again, not just in business, but life as well. Hence my perspective, in that we can complicate life or take a pragmatic approach. I grew up in a single parent household, with my father and younger sister, uncommon in my community whereby most single parent would be one’s mother, but this has shaped my thinking…not everything is what it seems. Firmly believe that personal and moral growth is a direct consequence of uplifting communities and protecting the vulnerable. Recently, I was the MD of a rural firefighting programme and still remains one of my passions in terms of assisting underserviced communities. I’ve worked in television, mainly satellite broadcasting, the South African revenue service, back into broadcasting, then firefighting and now green economy initiatives including a component of green building construction and manufacturing. Personally, an avid motorcycle enthusiast as well as a proponent of animal welfare. As you will notice from my pictures, motorcycles and pets. Right now, we have 10 pets, 4 dogs and 6 cats. All are adopted and some rescued, save for the German Shepherd.

I am a fun loving guy! I am a lover of spirituality, people, animals, arts, music, philosophy, psychology, books and technology! My hometown is in Elsies River, a small community in Cape Town, where I am currently residing as well. In primary school, I was bullied for reasons which at that time I could make sense of but do now. My need to fit in helped me discover my love for chess and classical music. I was ''religiously'' brought up in the Christian tradition until it stopped serving me around 2012 completely. I was completely lost especially after my mom's passing in 2011 from which I asked the question to myself that there must be more to life than earthly wealth because I simply discovered that it doesn't bring the happiness that my parents and society told me. I knew that there must be more to life. My deep need to help my family after my mom's passing led my to cut my investment banking career in Johannesburg as a quant very short. I follow the Buddhist way life as best as I can because it help me understand the nature of my own suffering and of others. I simply hate to see people suffer. I try to help people in which ever way I can. I finished a Bsc in Mathematics and Statistics, honours in Computational Finance and an incomplete MSc. I worked as a Senior Fund Accountant mostly. I am a part-time musician and love dancing. I love people but I am more introverted. I most prefer my own company. I am too sensitive lol. I love teaching as well! I was a part-time lecturer in Statistics but I tutored maths from my second year. This also helped myself and parents. My hard work helped me to get get scholarhips to cover the rest of my studies. I worked as a barman. I am a part-time musician. Played in the Cape Town Youth Philharmonic and my music center's symphony orchestras. I love and thank all my teachers! Everyone is generally my teacher. A little more about my childhood. It was ok with the usual joyful moments and traumas. I did what my parents expected and was occasionally rewarded. I attended school in my community until my need for better education and passion for music landed me a scholarship to go to any school of my choice. This all happened in the middle of my high school career. The switch opened my eyes. Better education where suddenly from the one of the top students at my old high school to the weakest. But I was welcomed nevertheless by all! As a member of the LGBTI community, it created a loving safe space to come out to.

I am passionate about my work. Because I love what I do, I have a steady source of motivation that drives me to do my best. In my last job, this passion led me to challenge myself daily and learn new skills that helped me to do better work. I am ambitious and driven. I thrive on challenges and constantly set goals for myself, so I have something to strive toward. I’m not comfortable with settling, and I’m always looking for an opportunity to do better and achieve greatness. I am an excellent communicator. I pride myself on making sure people have the right information because it drives better results. Most business issues stem from poor communication, so I feel a responsibility to keep everyone on the same page. I am results-oriented, constantly checking in with the goal to determine how close or how far away we are and what it will take to make it happen. I find this pressure inspiring and a great motivator for the rest of the team. I am highly organized. I always take notes, and I use a series of tools to help myself stay on top of deadlines. I like to keep a clean workspace and create a logical filing method so I’m always able to find what I need. I find this increases efficiency and helps the rest of the team stay on track, too. I’m a people-person. I love meeting new people and learning about their lives and their backgrounds. I can almost always find common ground with strangers, and I like making people feel comfortable in my presence.

I was born in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga, but raised in Jozini, Kwa-Zulu Natal and a Diver at heart. School Holidays was spent on the beach and in the ocean at Sodwana Bay. My Passion for acting started at a young age when I was approached by my arts teacher to play the lead as “Joseph” in that year’s school play, “Joseph and his technicolor dream coat”. In 2006, I moved to Saldanha bay Naval Base to conduct my basic training and upon completion, reported to Simon’s Town Naval Base Diving Centre. I worked at the Naval Diving Centre until mid- 2007, but reported for duty aboard SAS Spioenkop (Naval Warship) later that year and for the rest of my stay in the SA Navy. I resigned from the SA Navy at the end of 2009 to further pursue my childhood passion for Acting, after it had been re-ignited back in 2007, when a Production Company came to shoot the one part series, “Diver’s Down”, at the Naval Diving Base where I was stationed. Since then, I performed numerous small roles in Films and TV Shows with goals and aspirations to become a successful actor in the industry. Years later and struggling in the industry I started a Photography business in 2017 shooting headshots for actors in the industry and also specializing in Real Estate Photography. I also worked in the hospitality industry during this time working my way up to head of staff at a fine dining Italian Restaurant in the Bellville area of Cape Town. December 2018 I made the very hard decision to hang up my Actor’s hat and retire from the industry as I needed to make a change. So with a fire in my belly and a pursuit of a new career I embarked on an old passion within the boating world. I completed my Yacht Master Coastal and SAS Day Skipper certificate followed by a plane ticket to Nice, France. I spent a month walking countless amount of steps that would make “Discovery Vitality” proud on the docks of the various harbors handing out my cv in an attempt to book work as crew on board. With a few days worth of day work under the belt and finally booking an interview for a possible crew position, my visa expired and I needed to come home. Luckily I was being strongly considered for a position aboard but I needed to wait for the boat to come out of the drydock. With this I flew back to SA with a hopeful heart knowing that I would soon return to France. As things go, the opportunity was cancelled (Owner preferred a merger of the two available roles and he preferred a female). What to do now? Unemployed and with depleted finances of not being able to return I started looking for work and was unemployed until Sept the same year when I finally got an opportunity to begin work as a Junior Site Supervisor for a Construction Business (not ideal, but hey challenge accepted and gotta pay dem bills son!). I have since then worked for the same company, building weigh bridges, expanding warehouses, pouring concrete floors and laying paving. I have learned so much and have grown allot since then. Recently I approached and dusted off my photography equipment again and am in the process of starting this up as well. Being in the construction industry has sparked allot of ideas and have given me a new passion for real estate, especially as an Investor. People tend to describe me as ambitious, hardworking, punctual and goal-oriented. I have high attention to detail and work really well in both a team environment and on my own. I am pro-active, a problem solver and creative at heart. I won’t stop until the project or task is completed. More personally I enjoy the outdoors, love being fit and healthy and spending my off time with my most valuable assets; family and friends. Short term goals: – To learn and grow the new skills required to perform given tasks efficiently and with excellence. -To prove myself a valuable asset, as a hardworking, dependable and trustworthy individual to my fellow colleagues, managers and seniors. Long term goals: -To become one of the best in my department and be seen as the go to guy for a specific job or task. -To become manager and coach to younger generations looking to enter my industry. -To eventually run a team of managers, teaching them to effectively run their teams with excellence. I believe in serving others with excellence. The effort you put in will reap the results you desire. I also believe that being truthful, respectful and trustworthy are very important keys to success and I strive to live by these principles daily.
