When Sherrill started travelling in her sixties she found volunteering to be her main source of lodging, food, and new friends. Chris quit a job with STA Travel for a life on the road, working as a surf instructor in Ecuador and appearing in a nudist movie, while Leif worked aboard a Caribbean sailing yacht. They are just some of the 168 travellers we have listed in our updated Workers of the World Profiles in the Jobs Abroad Bulletin.

We often get asked questions here at TWT but to be honest we are a bit hit or miss about answering your enquiries. When we are on the ball, on top of things and have an answer quickly to hand - or, even better, in my head - we can be both helpful and quick to respond but when I have my head down and am working on a project email is something I tend to neglect. So we have done what we always do when confronted with a problem. We have got someone else to do it.

There's more to working in Japan than just teaching English though, to be honest, not that much more if you don't speak Japanese. Our initial short list for today's Friday three did include a couple of sites good for other ways to work in Japan but we'll follow these up another day and instead focus today on good sites for finding teaching jobs in Japan.
If you are comfortable on a bicycle saddle, try applying to the three companies we have selected today, whose tours range from gentle meanders sampling the wares in Californian or French wine regions to climbing thousands of feet in the Himalayas or the volcano pitted landscape of Chile.
