Tips / Other

Many travelers are exchanging their regular home lives for a more exciting life abroad. However, no matter where in the world you visit, money is needed to live a comfortable life. Gaining work experience abroad can diversity a resume and open opportunities worldwide. For travelers who wish to live a more nomadic lifestyle, getting a short-term job in a country is also a great option. This will ensure travelers have enough money to get by and give them experience. Before leaving for a country or while in a foreign land, travelers can use the internet to find jobs or local resources.

One helpful website is findworkabroad.com. This website features teaching and non-teaching jobs that might interest travelers. For those with a background in teaching, this website is going to be extremely useful. It lists the places and companies looking for teachers and a salary range, so travelers can know upfront how much they’ll make.

Another website, overseasjobs.com, is a great place for those without teaching skills. The jobs here range in skills required so it’s helpful to browse through the many jobs and requirements. The website pulls job postings from popular websites, such as Indeed and Zip Recruiter. The interview process would be like one in your home country except it would probably take place over Skype.

A website that will not only help you find a job, but an apartment, car and roommate as well, is easyexpat.com. The website has international advertisements, discussion forums and job listings from all over the world. It’s free to sign up and this grants access to a wealth of knowledge shared by other like-minded individuals.

Taking It Back to Basics at Ghent’s Gruut Brewery

Breweries are everywhere today and, while many craft and microbreweries specialize in particular styles of beer, few are quite as specialized as Ghent Gruut Brewery in Ghent, Belgium. Here, the current craze for hop-heavy India Pale Ales is entirely eschewed as absolutely no hops at all are used in the brewing process. Before you clamor to claim this can’t be beer at all as everyone knows the four ingredients of beer are grain, water, yeast, and hops, consider hops weren’t actually added to beer until the 13th century. Before then, all beers were flavored with herbs and spices, or gruut, as the French population of medieval Ghent called them.
