Since we hadn't been on a motobike in almost 7 months we were just itching to get our hands on one - even if it was a couple of itty bitty 100cc Honda Waves.
We last visited Siem Reap in 2012 (see our former post: Siem Reap and the Temples of Angkor), and it was interesting to return two years later. Since we had already seen the majestic Angkor Wat we didn't really feel like we had to see it again. Which was ok, because we were there to work!
For a city that's been around since 700 BCE, the city that is now known as Istanbul feels pretty damn modern.
In our effort to show just how affordable travel can really be, we've kept a detailed spreadsheet of all our expenses. We spent a total of 75 days in France, but only spent a total of $2,022.66 while there! During our visit to France, one Euro was equal to $1.37 USD. All amounts listed have been converted to USD.

We arrived at our next workaway at Mas Sarrat on July 18th. It was our third workaway experience, and also our third workaway in France. We spent a month there, exploring the woods and countryside, and of course, helping our host, Fiona with her catering business and with her gites.
We arrived in Olargues on June 9th. It had been a decent travel day- we took the shuttle to the airport in Beauvais (1 hr ride- 17.90 euro/person) and then a flight to Beziers, an hour's drive from our first workaway in the south of France ($26/person- funny how the shuttle and the flight almost cost the same). The airport in Beziers is very small, there are only two gates, with only one airline operating out of it. We arrived around 7pm but it was still light out and we found our hosts Elke and Norbert waiting for us in the tiny airport's parking lot.
