Alternative Travel:  Going for
monk-handsDifferent Reasons

 

At GoNOMAD, we know there's more to travel than sightseeing


To really get close to the people and places you visit, you have to get involved. Take a language or cooking course, volunteer with children or community development, study Tibetan Buddhism or participate in an archaeological dig, teach English or work on a farm for a few days, weeks, or months. No matter your age or interest, there's an alternative travel opportunity for you at GoNOMAD.

Below you'll find articles about volunteering around the world, or slightly offbeat types of trips...definitely not your run of the mill, sit on the beach vacation. Some people want to learn a new language, others want to teach English, and others just want to do something they've never done before.
