More About the Author

Susan Griffith is a freelance editor and writer who has specialized for more than 30 years in writing books and articles about travel, especially working and volunteering abroad. The first edition of her best known book Work Your Way Around the World was researched in 1982 mainly by listening attentively to the stories of travellers met abroad. At that time she had plenty of personal experience of working abroad since she had left her native Canada after doing a degree in English at the University of Toronto to study at Oxford and then decided to stay on working in England. Susan has also been a contributing editor to Transitions Abroad since the early days of its publication and contributes occasional articles to the travel pages of The Independent.

I bought this on the basis that it would give me some ideas for my round-the-world trip. But it doesn't really. It's mainly about secular volunteering agencies. If that is what you want, this will give you a load of bibliography. It's also big on how to negotiate time off work, and things like that.
