If you are helpful and eager we'll love to have you. We do get away for two week-ends and you can join us. We live in the Mid North Coast of NSW, Australia. We are very near the beach, very near to rivers and close enough to the towns. It's a 2.5 acre block and we are re-creating the gardens and making additions to the 2-storey house we live in. We have Asian and Aussie backgrounds and it's an interesting humorous mix. We are easy going and love a good joke and have travelled to Asia and Europe. We are semi-retired and have some projects on to finish before we travel again. Our adult children are not with us and they live faraway. Both of us are friendly and warm, love people and working together on projects. We may take you bush-walking, camping, fishing and generally visiting places as we do that on a regular basis.

Area: Rhône-AlpesWorkaway Note: Please contact this host in French Hello there, we have just arrived in a farmhouse in the hamlet of Bonjean in the small village of Montfalcon. This village is in the middle of the natural park of Chambaran. There is a lot of walking to do nearby (walking, cycling, horse ...). But also many things to visit : St Antoine Abbey, the Ideal Palace of Postman Cheval, St André coast, Vercors ... We live 2 in this farm and we will develop an agricultural activity around beekeeping, of peasant hospitality and bakery shelter. All our productions are labeled bio see "Nature and Progres". We are currently being installed and managers in the living light show. The work and our professional activities leave us little free time. So we are not able to assist you in systematically exploring the region. But we will do it with pleasure whenever possible. We like to share and discover during construction of base course and during meals! See you soon! ---- Bonjour, nous venons d'arriver dans une ferme au hameau du Bonjean dans le petit village de Montfalcon. Ce village est en plein milieu du parc naturel des Chambaran. Il y a beaucoup de balade à faire dans les environs (à pied, à vélo, à cheval...). Mais aussi beaucoup de choses à visiter : St Antoine l'abbaye, le Palais idéal du facteur Cheval, la côte St André, le Vercors...

Toutes nos productions seront labellisées bio voir "Nature et Progrés". Nous sommes en cours d'installation et actuellement régisseurs lumière dans le spectacle vivant. Les travaux et nos activités professionnelles ne nous laissent que peu de temps libre. Nous ne pourrons donc pas vous accompagner systématiquement dans la découverte de la région. Mais nous le ferons avec plaisir à chaque fois que cela est possible. Nous apprécions d'échanger et de se découvrir pendant les travaux en communs et bien entendu pendant les repas ! A bientôt !
Area: Lalitupur, Kathmandu Valley and Sauhara, ChitwanLong story short, my husband and I co-founded a center for impoverished children, in 1995. Since then we have provided food, shelter, and education for over 1,000 children. Currently, we have 18 children, aged 5 years to 18 years. Some of their favorite things to do are drawing, jumping rope, playing football, dancing, and watching movies (Bollywood, Nepali, Korean...everything and anything really). They also have a special fondness for Michael Jackson, and some can even mimic his dance routines! :)
