After watching my retirement plan tank recently, I am guessing I will have to revise my lofty goals of only having to work part time so I can eat still with some travel to ... well, could be full time sacking groceries til I'm 95.
Thankfully, I stumbled onto a cool program called WWOOF, or World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms. Now, I know I can stay and eat free in lots of countries in exchange for being farm labor. Glamorous travel to places like Europe and even Malaysia and Tonga can be mine in exchange for just hard physical labor, weed pulling, compost spreading. Hey, whatever works.
