There was a woman living in a beautiful home in the countryside. The house had a porch, big sunny windows, and the front door had an opening to a garden full of flowers.
One day, the woman was found outside her yard by her Gardner. She was intently searching the ground near a lamppost, so he asked her about the goal of her quest.
“I’m looking for the keys of my house“, she replied worried and anxious.
The Gardner helped her to look for the keys for a few minutes, but without success. Then he asked her whether she is certain that she dropped the keys near the lamppost.
“No“, she replied. I lost the keys somewhere inside the house.
“My lady, you lost the keys inside the house? asked the Gardner surprised and irritated. “Why do look for them out here?”
“The house is too dark, the electricity just went off and I can’t see very well. I came out to the lamppost because the light is much better here.”
1st of October is almost here you probably can’t wait to hit the road in your final Work & Travel trip. Would it be best to pay an agency to take you to these places or should you plan it together with some friends? Can you spend less than $1,000? How many days do you need to stay in order to see everything? Do you really need to take all your luggage with you?
If you are planning to see California Coast in your final Work & Travel trip, you can take some inspiration from my planning from 2 years ago. I organized this trip together with 6 other friends and perhaps you can do the same.
Summer is here and Portugal is calling!
If you still don’t know where to go this summer, but you know you want sandy beaches, blue waters, extraordinary cliffy landscapes, lots of sea food and an affordable destination, Algarve might be for you.
Algarve is the Southernmost region of Portugal and is the most popular tourist destination in the country and perhaps in the whole Europe. In this article, I want to share my experience there and 7 tips that you might take into consideration before planning your trip.
Are you ready to go to the USA with Work & Travel? You might say “Yes”, but there is still one BIG step to achieve. During March, April and May you’ll need to go to the final jury, and they will tell you if you are ready or not: the USA Embassy.
If you are anxious about this future step…and you:
- want to know the 7 questions that you can get during the J1 visa interview
- my personal experiences during the interviews (I went 3 times)
- the biggest risk that I made which could cost me my Visa
this article might be for you. :-)
“What if you come back home and nobody will hire you (and marry you -and love you- and be friends with you again)”?
I get this question from many students who want to travel with Erasmus and Work & Travel, but are afraid that when they are coming back, they can’t catch up with home again.
There are usually 2 answers that I give to this question.
The beauty of Cluj-Napoca is that its location is very close (2h away) to the Apuseni Mountains. Continuing the series about what you can do 1 day outside Cluj-Napoca, here is another beautiful idea. (again, you need a car for the trip)
Keep reading if you’ve always wanted to:
- go horseback riding in nature even if you’ve never ridden a horse before

“He drove his girlfriend from Bistrita, just to take her out on a date at the cinema in Cluj.” That’s when I realized once again, Cluj is awesome and I should not take it for granted.
When I ask my friends “Why did you choose it?”, I see a big smile on their faces and how they can’t make up their mind about their reasons.
But me. I am from Cluj. All its cafes, bars, parks and cinemas are not enough for me. When the Sun is up…You simply can’t stay in the city. There are so many other beautiful things to discover around. Today, I’m going to introduce you to…
The day we say goodbye has come. I don’t know if I am happy or not, but I am for sure, grateful that we were together 5 years.
Thank you for the most amazing time of my life. Thank you for funding me 5,000 euros to study in Portugal and The Netherlands, thank you for sending me to the USA 3 times. Thank you for making my holidays more beautiful with the summer schools. Thank you for all the moments I spent with my colleagues in the dorms. Thank you for transforming 3 colleagues into 3 friends for life. Thank you for giving me access to free education and to some amazing teachers.
