INTERNeX Through the Looking Glass -Ranchstay Program

Hey hey hey! It’s Faaaat Al…No just me. It’s Amiel again. Excuse the little excursion into childhood memories. 😀 Speaking of the past though, have a look at my post from last week concerning the Hospitality Program.ranchstayAnd here’s a fantastic quote by Leonardo da Vinci: “For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.” It describes exactly how I feel about travelling. After spending a little time living in other places, you want to keep going always anticipating your next experience in a different country.

So, let’s talk about the INTERNeX Ranchstay. The program is just as the name suggests. It involves spending your time at a ranch and experiencing the life of a farming family in the countryside of either Canada or New Zealand. While participating in this program you are treated as part of the family and will be expected to pitch in with the daily chores. Though that will only take up one part of your stay. The rest includes the cowboy/cowgirl way of life of horseback, driving tractors, taking care of animals and visiting community festivals. This enables you to learn about the local culture and mentality. Are people living in the outskirts of urban civilization really the same as they are depicted in stories Natasjaand movies? It’s definitely something worth finding out! Ranchstay is an incredible experience, especially if you love being surrounded by nature, far far away from the cities. Natasja, my partner in the INTERNeX PR department even spent a little time on some of the farms and returned wishing she could have stayed a bit longer.

So, the program works like this: Again, there will be a conversation at the beginning discussing your goals in participating after which INTERNeX will find a suitable ranch for you. Then, you just travel to your desired destination following the completion of the necessary paperwork, of course. And what awaits you at arriving at the ranch is a whole new world you had known only very little about before!

Next Sunday, more on INTERNeX Through the Looking Glass. A post about one of the many destinations INTERNeX is able to help you explore.
