A grim spell of working overtime and denying yourself a social life is one route to being able to join a safari in Tanzania, a water sport instructor's course on the Mediterranean or a bungee jump in New Zealand. But what if it were possible to skip this stage and head off towards the horizon sooner than that? Work Your Way Around the Worldis the trusted guide for the world traveller, now in its 15th edition and fully updated to explain how you can fund your trip by finding temporary work around the world ; both in advance and on the spot while travelling.
