      Hey Kimberley! I strongly suggest you visit Donna in Palawan! :) It's beautiful! Can also drop by Cebu, Bohol, Siquijor, in the Visayas region as well as Camiguin, Siargao, Surigao, in the northern Mindanao region. Or try Sagada, Banaue, Pangasinan, in northern Luzon and/or Camsur, Legazpi, Sorsogon in southern Luzon! :)

      From what I have heard, Argentina, Chile & Uruguay offer working holiday visas. The only downside is that I think it's limited to certain nationalities. It's probably still worth checking into with the local consulate/embassy of the country.

    If any of you are interested in volunteering in Central America, there's a great opportunity to win a volunteer trip to Antigua, Guatemala on the Volunteer Network on Tripping. It's a wonderful project that helps children stay off the streets and single mothers become independent through sustainable farming projects. Go check it out!
    Volunteer Network
    https://www.tripping.com/network/volunteer-ne...
    Tripping is a community of travelers who believe cultural exchange makes the world a better place. Step off the tourist track and meet locals for coffee, conversation and free home stays. Tripping is the future of travel.
