traveling, poor vegwebbers
i think we should start a traveling vegweb community of people who like to travel (duh!) and wouldn't mind housing other vegwebbers. because who really likes hotels/spending money on them? and there are vegwebbers everywhere!
does anyone else think that would be fun or is it just me?
I'm with you Hespedal! I'm backing you up, I think this is a great idea! :)
I like your new picture by the way...haha its awesome!
sounds cool, but I don't think many of you will be traveling to middle of nowhere Ottawa,IL ::)
tanevab, I always thought you were from Australia. Maybe it was your love of Marmite . . . . BTW, I finished up the jar and I am NOT buying anymore because I think I put on ten points just from eating toast with Marmite
Sounds like a great idea to me!
my house is open to anyone visiting or passing through nashville, tn. :)
Wouldn't that just be like couchsurfing.com? Theoretically everyone whose interested here could just register there. They have groups so someone could set up a vegweb group. That would be pretty cool.
I just joined couchsurfing.com a few weeks ago, while I haven't really explored the site too much it seems like they have a large veg*n group with tons of people.
maybe this is my "i have no idea what i am going to do with my life so i had better just move around a lot" thing... but all i want to do right now is travel (too bad i am a slave to this system we call a 'college education' for another year... boo).
That's actually kind of exactly what I'm doing now! I graduated,had no idea what I wanted to do and then found out, hey some people will pay me to go live in China if I just teach a couple of English classes. The best part is I make about enough to afford train fare and the occasional flight to other parts of China/ Asia.
awesome. what program is it through?
I went through Marshall University: http://www.marshall.edu/gochina/ It's a very good program; they give you a basic class on teaching ESL and arrange all the contract stuff for you then there is an orientation in China which involved a lot of visiting cool things and was very fun. Plus the administrator is just awesome.
If you'd like to go somewhere other than China, check out Dave's ESL Cafe: http://www.eslcafe.com/ they have alot of job postings, and once you are teaching they are a good source for lesson plans.
There are a lot of programs to go a lot of places, really you can just do a google search. Oh, one thing, if you want to go to Japan, there is only one program and it is administered by the government (I think its called the JET program) and you have to put in an application before January, I think.
I checked out couchsurfing.com just to see what it was about. It's a cool idea but I don't think I'd have the guts to stay at anyone's house or have them at mine. :-\ What if they turn out to be completely crazy? O if you can't stand them within 5 minutes? You've already agreed to let them stay at your house and it would be totally mean at that point if you kicked them out and they're from a foreign country.
Hespedal.....where's the person from who wants to stay at your house? Just curious.
I signed up too!! Looks like a great site, and a great idea! I may be using it when I travel to Europe next year :)
