In the comment to the previous post, George Jemmott has explained what WWOOFing is:
WWOOFing (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms)ing is awesome. Work while you travel, see http://www.wwoof.org/ .
Actually he doesn’t really explain what it is does he? But if you visit the website it explains it all there. A kind of “I’ll scrub your back if you scrub mine” arrangement whereby volunteers work on organic farms across the World for free board and lodgings (including of course, lots of organic food). And this is what Rob Lewis and his new wife will be doing en route to Istanbul.
