Workaway in Brunei …

I am sooooo exited. Because tomorrow I am going to Brunei. The official name is Nation of Brunei, the Abode of Peace and it is a sultanate, a sovereign state located on the north coast of the island of Borneo in Southeast Asia.

I have to admit that I don’t know much about Brunei apart from what I’ve read about the country in the press, but for those interested just click on the link to Wikipedia. Perhaps it’s a good thing visiting a country without having any expectations.

What I do know is that I am going to my first workaway. My hosts Andreas and Leslie are running an Eco Village next to the Temburong River, close to one of the best preserved rainforests in Borneo. The type of work my hosts will need help with is …

… gardening, building, cooking, shopping, general maintenance, farming, help with exo project, helping with tourists, language practice, art project and teaching.

I really don’t mind getting dirty, and doing hard work will just keep me away from the gym. And I’ll probably sleep like a baby at night. All good.

Working 5 hours a day, 5 days a week will give me plenty of time to explore the enviroment and the community. I’m so looking forward to this adventure. It starts tomorrow …
