For animal lovers they have donkeys, horses, sheep, dogs, cats, pigeons, chickens and geese living on their land.
They can host several volunteers at a time, each of whom is encouraged to be as creative as possible in bringing their projects to life.

⭐️Massage And Gardening
REMOTE > A few months ago we were asked what our fee would be to post a 90 second reel on Instagram for a travel and hospitality website (who are also currently looking for a freelance journalist. See below for more details).
Specifically, we would read clearly and with enthusiasm to our phone a custom written article from said website. As uncontacted tribes in the Amazon took to social media quicker than us our Instagram presence is negligible and, adding our generally grumpy demeanour, muttering elocution and habit of glaring at cameras with hostile suspicion, we felt this wasn’t something we could fairly ask for money to do.
Your skill set and socials numbers may be perfect for this sort of thing though, helping to fund your time away from home. Deanna Troy is one traveller that monetizes her presence on video platforms, YouTube in her case, from page views and sponsored videos from brands that align with her niche.

They will also be comfortable pitching ideas to the editor directly to get sign off and able to work proactively and remotely.
