What it is like to travel the world as an Ambassador of World Life Experience
«Congratulations! You’ve been selected out of 43,000 applicants from all over the globe to travel the world». This is a message I received a few months ago and it sounded too good to be true. Is it a scam? Would they take our organs out to pay for the expenses? These are some of the questions that rushed through my head as I started this journey.
I loved my life in Moscow: my job, my friends and my life as an art student. Making a U-turn in my life wasn’t something I planned. I took a leap of faith by embarking on this adventure 3 months ago and have been enjoying it every single day! It is not a scam. We still have all our kidneys (and other organs) and, moreover, I’m ready to share my insights so far.
I have worked and travelled across 9 countries during the past 3 months:
-Planted trees in the small village of Ferraria in the north of Portugal. It was badly hit by fires last year and a whole forest disappeared as a result of this natural disaster
-Worked in the refugee community/refugee camp in the Netherlands
-Painted the Youth Center in Croatia
-Helped with the integration of Roma people in Romania
The beauty of this adventure is that I’m discovering new countries and cultures, helping other people, trying to make the world a better place while getting paid for this.
Here is one thing I learned during this adventure with World Life Experience: sometimes all you can do is take a leap of faith. Not knowing what the future holds, not knowing where this step would take you. Step into the unknown and have faith that things would work out. There is a line from one movie that I like: “Sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just twenty courage of embarrassing bravery. Something great will come of it”.
If you like travelling around the world and helping other people, then this could be your chance! Next year World Life Experience will take 11 travellers from different corners of the world and will send them on a trip around the world. You will visit 20 countries in 1 year. With all expenses covered and a salary on top, this is a once-in-lifetime opportunity to explore the world and learn more about yourself.
