The International Wanderer has complied an extensive online country resource with information on every destination / country in the world.

For each country you will find: information about the country, living abroad, working abroad, studying abroad, volunteering abroad in that country.

We also provide working holiday visa or working holiday scheme information and other travel or live, work, study, volunteer visa information for different countries.


Each country also features information that will help you: before you go, when you’ve  just landed, to help you with settling in to a new country and what you need to know when preparing to leave that country and head home again.

Each destination also links to blog and news articles that feature that country. Finally – each country links to online directories, including: an expat community directory for that country, jobs, volunteer, intern and study, learn opportunities for that destination.

From working in the United States, soaking up the sun in South Africa, skiing in Canada, cruising the Nile or Alaska or volunteering and exploring ancient ruins in Egypt to island and job-hopping through the Mediterranean, picking fruit in New Zealand, learning the rhythms of Latin America…it’s there to be experienced.

So what would you like to do? Work your way around the ski fields of the world? Discover ancient civilizations of Asia?  Get off the beaten track and into jungles of Borneo, Costa Rica or Sri Lanka? Volunteer in the Galapagos Islands? Study in Cuba? Work on a cruise ship? Let your imagination and dreams run wild – then click on a destination from the menu on this page and let’s see how we can make it happen.

As you make your plans - keep in mind – many have found that a destination is not a place – but rather a new or different way of seeing things.
