Area: Vesteraalen/Lofoten***** Due to the high demand of volunteers we are fully booked until the end of JULY 2013 - Exception: a.) May - June: Strong & handy people who possibly might be able to operate an open boat. b.) Anytime: Skilled plumbers or concreters. ***** Our lighthouse is the only property on a small island in the Norwegian sea in the arctic part of Norway. We are about to build up the lighthouse as a special guestplace with rooms for rent, a cafe, a green garden with potato land and a herbal garden. Everything grown here is ecological. We are self sufficient with water, energy & transport. The place is unique, and so are the people coming here to help out gradually turning this place into a lighthouse with a big soul. I live here all year long, so volunteers are welcome any season. Thanks to the Gulf Stream the climate is mild and relatively warm - taken into consideration it is beyond the polar circle! Please see pictures and more info on our webpage, which you can ask for when applying.

Area: Wadi Rum Village, south of Jordan in between Petra and Aqaba.After several years working with tourists in the beautiful desert of Wadi Rum in Jordan, I've got a big experience as a guide. My name is Atayek Hamad, from the tribe of Zalabieh and i grew up in the desert where my parents are still living in. I am very proud of my bedouin culture and I like to share it with the foreigners who are going to visit my area. Very good driver, well experimented as trekking guide, I speak and understand english good enough and I want to communicate my passion of the desert to the others. I know many beautiful places where you can contemplate the red landscape of Wadi Rum, on the top of the highest mountains of the place for example. I will show you the tracks of animal drawings on the sand, I will tell you about our wild bedouin life here, I will lead you through unknown canyons and roads. We will share together the pleasure of being in such an amazing place. You can decide to sleep under a bedouin tent in a camp, or outside in the moonlight, you can decide if you prefere to visit Wadi Rum by jeep or by feet, I will adapt my tour to everyone, because each one has his own rythm, each one have different wishes. I am sure you'll spend an unforgetable moment with us in our desert.
Area: Pays de la LoireHi We use to travel as often as we can (Morroco, india, Israel, Australia, eastern Europe, New-Zealand…) and we found a great way to go on travelling while we’re at home : hosting workawayers ! We are a friendly french family : Christophe : healer (osteopath) likes to practise Tai-chi-chuan and very good cook (healty food), Maud : writter and actor's director, with 2 easy going children Lin 9 years old and Enki-Aimé nearly 1 year. Lin is a great French teacher, he is very talkative! And you could teach him some English too. Right now, we live in a tiny straw balls house, where you will have your little own bedroom. We are also restoring a goat’s barn that Maud’s father built in the eighties... The place is situated in a beautiful area with fields and forests, close to a small typical village, not very far from Paris (1H30 by train and bus). If you feel like being in the nature, living simply, sharing lifetime, come to join us. We need a hand for different kind of things : to look after our children, for cooking (we love discovering new meals from all over the world) and in the outdoors like planting fruit trees, cleaning or gardening. Also, artists and creative people who like all kind of manual activities are much welcome. Sometimes our plans change at the last minut, we are not very organized people, so you need to be flexible... Very close to home, you will find nice walking and biking tracks, artisanal markets, festivals,brocantes,lacs, horse riding farm. you can be any age, alone, with friends, couple or family.Couples are really welcome, they can be quiet independent when they feel like. Welcome home!
