    The Global Work & Travel Co.

    Some would say about this that you spend your holidays working, but the truth is that you will work in exchange for holidays. The Global Work & Travel Co offers you a huge catalog of possibilities for living a life-changing experience.

    "Do you have the freedom to work remotely? Do you like to travel? Are you super adventurous? If so this might be just the thing you need. Who hasn't wished they could travel the world and see all those things most people are too busy working to make time for? Good resource for people that are tired of sitting in a cube or home office and are looking to get a bit more of life out of life."

    "I am really fond of travelling. However, I have had difficulty finding travel website that can help me with my travelling needs in Spanish speaking countries. A great program that was recommended to me by my friend was Diverbo which has a lot of features to assist me with travel to those areas. "

    "I recently became interested in working and traveling abroad. So I began looking at some of the best work and travel websites. That is when I found AuPair World. This website pairs you with a host family in the country of your choosing. Not only do you receive free accommodation but you also get paid to provide the host family with child care services. It is definitely an interesting way to see the world."

    "This is a nice resource to have if you travel for work. It's great if you want to find a house-sitter, but it's a little more fine-tuned than I was looking for. I was hoping to find a diverse website of job opportunities, more specifically."

    "If you're looking for adventure and willing to trade some honest work for room and board, this site can hook you up with sponsors. I just returned from New Zealand where I got to be a cowboy! Norway is next, if I can work it out!"

    "I love to travel, however there's a lot of problems with traveling when I have two kids and two dogs. Trusted House sitters takes a lot of the worry away from traveling. There are a lot of babysitters, house sitters, and even pet sitters on the site. It's perfect. Best of all, people can rank them and rate them - so i know I'm in good hands."

    "This is an interesting idea. I'm not sure how legal it is to not pay people, but for part-time temporary work it might be a nice way to see another part of the world when you couldn't afford it otherwise. I would also think it would be a way to meet people in a way that is very different than the usual vacation."
